Type of internet connection.
    #3180929 - 09/26/04 12:20 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Always wondered what type of connection everyone here has.. Sometimes I wonder about posting high res images too - It might get annoying for those who have to sit and watch the image download piece by piece.

Theres nothing wrong with being on dial up. I was on it for a number of years, and im sure everyone was at some point. There are a number of reasons for not having high speed. Some places it's not available. Even in places that have it, the price can be high and I wouldnt pay that much unless I used the computer often. The main reasons that I got cable was for p2p downloads and online gaming.
Modem type:
You may choose only one
Cable, Dsl or faster
Dial up
Other

It does, except for the fact that it's a T1 connection shared by about 3,000 students, so it's not quite as fast as you'd think.

I bet it is better than a T-1. A t-1 is only 1.5mbps and that is the same downstream rate I get with my DSL.

Download often above 500 kB/s (4 mbps = 4.000 kbps)
Upload a nifty 125 kB/s (1 mbps = 1.000 kbps)

and yes: I pay through the NOSE for that cable!

College connection... T3 or better, although most of the time I see between 10mbps to 15mbps.
