Just keep in mind, once you have broadband, you'll never be able to go back.

I have roadrunner high speed(I live in NYC). Its estimated at about 50x faster then dial up. Lets just say that i forgot how to write with a pen.

There is also another broadband provider close to my area that provides speeds up to 100x faster then dial up(Optimum Online). I am about 10 miles out from the available area. I think I might move just for to get that service. My uncle lives in that area and one night he downloaded Return of The Jedi from Kazaa (about 750 MB) under 1 (ONE!!!!) hour.

Be Warned!!!
Broadband is an addictive drug with no known cure. Do not let it get to you too. Its too late for me. SAVE YOURSELF!!!!!
56K or lower is the way to go if you want to live a normal human life.

Broadband + Peer-to-Peer = No Social Life

It is also too late for me. I wonder if there is a Broadband Aynomous (I's not a very good speeler).

*Edit*

It should be I'm no a very good speller. That has nothing to do with my inability to spell. It has to do with my mom trying to talk to me and me trying to type 50 words a minute.
