Cable. I guess it's about 2.5 Mbits.

Like everyone else, I can never, ever return to 56K. I'm addicted to high speed :D.

It's not to uncommon really to not have DSL or cable in your area....I live just far enough outside of the St. Louis area to not have either service available, and that isn't very far....about 30 miles outside of the main city limits and about 15 miles outside of the county limits. So I'm still stuck on 56k too.

used to have 56K, then moved to 128K about 2 yrs later.. then 512k and the company changed it to 600K for free soon after, then moved to 1MB and the company changed it to 1.5mb (T1) upload is only 30KB/s but max download ive seen is 180Kb's thats very fast for the uk.

i know someone in my grandfathers street that ordered cable, but found out dial up was cheaper so moved back to that.. :lol:

I'm on ye olde 56k connection. Whats really annoying is, my dad won't upgrade it to 512k for an extra £2 a month untill I get a job but if I do get a job he said he'll pay for it anyway :rolleyes:

But I guess when I do get a job i'll just go straight for a 2mb connection and pay the extra. But untill then i'm stuck with this slow crap :(
