Yay! Got my internetz back!
« on: July 07, 2011, 03:38:24 pm »
Got sick of AT&T jerking me around so I cancelled service and ordered Charter.  For only a little bit more, I'm getting 12+ Mbps on cable (I'm averaging 18 or so) instead of paying for 3 Mbps from AT&T DSL and only getting 1.5.

Got this earlier, so I'm happy:

This sums up exactly what happened to me. Welcome to the cable bandwagon.

Lmao, PK. You make me laugh every time you post.   And yeah, Killer, I have wanted faster internet for a while. I was getting ripped off. I can't wait to torrent something when I get things all wired up. (Gotta get a 30 foot ethernet cable to run along the baseboards of my room to reach my gaming rig and set up a wireless router since they wanted $10 extra to use their wireless gateway).

Yeah, back in the day I had the 768Kbps package, which is total shit for $20 a month, and was only getting a max of 300Kbps or so. Switched over to cable and Charter, got the 8Mbps package for $30 and was averaging about 15Mbps with their Powerboost. Now with the free increase, I'm paying for 12Mbps, still at $30, and averaging at around 17-18Mbps. Just a hint of advice, Charter monitors torrenting pretty often, my friend got hit with a letter a couple months ago, then a couple weeks later I did. Static IP ftl. :(

Only if you agree to split posession of Drizzle, and blindfold trent for 20 minutes so I can do my thing in privacy. Once these demands are met, I will consider your offer.
