My new cable modem

My cable modem was finally installed today. 120Kbps! It took me about 15 minutes to download a 65Mb file. Life is good. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

Re: My new cable modem

This might sound dumb, but is it possible to get a cable modem with a satellite dish?

Re: My new cable modem

Guess what. You cannot get cable in Germany. I have ISDN rates of about 7.4K, but I WANT A STELLITE CONNECTION!

Re: My new cable modem

Personally I have a manual modem. It works like this: I print out the data on a paper, call a cab, drive to the modem pool where I dump the papers into a mailbag sort of thing. After about an hour (for a two Mb file) I'm handed a new bunch of papers which I bring back home. Then I type in what's on the papers in Edit on my comp, wait for the computer to process the information, print out the results, call a new cab etc. I get about 1 bit/hour this way. Beat that if you can!

Re: My new cable modem

I'm there with you Neo, also having ISDN. Although 7 kb/s isn't that bad, it is really slow compared to those cable speeds...

Re: My new cable modem

hmm...i'm on a t3 line here at school and it sucks. i get great ping, but not much in the way of throughput. i can get 1200kbps or so on campus, but the highest i ever got off the internet was about 100...generally 10kbps is my max. it seems to have seriously degraded over the year too, probably because the campus only uses 10mbps ethernet, rather than 100. hmm...
