Maybe! Tomorrow a man is coming over to check out our house for a possible wireless connection! Gone are the days of dialup for me...T1, hopefully
Keep your fingers crossed for me everybody!
Once you get it you'll never go back to dial-up.
Good luck I hope he can do it.
Yeah, I can't wait till tomorrow! I'm not sure when after that we'd be getting it if it can go through, but I'll be sure to post, because I think I have a few things some members have needed and I haven't been able to upload them due to the amout of time needed.
Falconjgc has a wireless internet connection. He has problems with it. He looses his connection or something like that alot. It's anoyying when your trying to play a game or something like that. It is still alot better than the old dial-up. I had it on my old Windows 95.
I've never heard of such a thing, what is it
A connection that's even fasted than ADSL, which is all I know about it. Anyway, good luck. I still have ADSL, i better get out of here before i get envious, na joking
Mypilot, if he has wireless, he probably has a bad line of sight to the serving tower. That was one thing I was worried about, but my house is on a hill, and I think I can see 2 of the towers they use.
JVD- As far as the speeds go, there's obviously 56k dial-up, and for some unlucky few, a 28.8k dial up. When you get into the high speed internet, you can get the 128k, 256k, which is what I think most ADSL providers offer, and a 512k or T1. They also offer a 6.0MBPS connection, which is wickedly fast, and priced so that only businesses, or someone who won the lotto can get. I've even seen a 40MBPS connection offered, but for 1500$ a month, there's better things to spend cash on!
T1 isn't always faster than ADSL.........T1 is a 1.5mb connection that sends and receives at 1.5mb. ADSL receives faster than it can send ie 1.5mbps receive / 288kbps send.
ADSL can also come in different speeds anywhere upto 8mbps at the moment but the send speed will always be a fraction of the receive rate.
In summary, T1 is better for sending data (uploading) and reliability. But ADSL is better for downloading providing you get a package over 1.5mb.
Then theres T3 which is mad at 45mbps and the equivalent of 28 T1 lines!
Hope this helps
My internet connection is 512, BT does not have a maximum bandwidth usage limit so I can go on the internet as much as I want . Anyway does anyone know any UK internet service provider that allows a 2mb internet connect with no monthly usage limit?
You might find a few here
Please note: costs are measured for a years access, contact the ISP for monthly cost or simply divide by 12.
Oh and BTW, the above list is not up to date unfortunately but it will give you an idea of the ISP's and their offerings.
thanks for the link
So now you're getting T1, huh? It is much better than dial-up. Everything is better than dial-up.
My internet connection is awesome! And it's really fast too.
Well, FEM, I hope you can get T1. You will never go back to the old dial-up.
Update: From my house, I can see ALL of their towers!!! Next wednesday, the last day of school for me, is when they hook me up!
Twistedsucker: why would you NEED a 2.0Mbps connection?
I finished High School yesterday. No more school for me.
Well, I hope everything runs well. Good luck!
CONGRADULATIONS ON GRADUATING
Ah, thanks you JVD!
