Your Internet Connection
 
How do you connect to the internet?

This type of information helps me when designing the site.

Grumpy 12-12-2003 05:39 PM

ADSL at home, 56k at work.

Grumpy 12-12-2003 05:40 PM

maybe a poll would be better? :)

Nathan 12-12-2003 05:42 PM

Can't you see the poll up top?

ToddS 12-12-2003 06:33 PM

D-i-a-l-u-p?

Grumpy 12-12-2003 11:43 PM

I check my connection speed every once in awhile at www.2wire.com > broadband meter. I have wireless network at home through comcast cable modem.

GJLever 12-16-2003 04:09 PM

Use a cable modem - very fast.
also noticed that when I click on "Nathan", the drop down menu is trasns parennt . I use Mozilla as a browser.

Nathan 12-16-2003 07:04 PM

I'm on a 1Mb Cable connection.

I'm excited.. next week we are setting up a satellite system at the jobsite. Dedicated 24Mbps at all times guaranteed. We looked at a T1 line which was cost prohibitive. The satellite costs around 150/mo and we can upgrade to T1 speed for about 1/3 of the price of an actual T1.

T1 is only 1.5Mbps What are you really getting out of the Sat.? maybe 24 Kbps?

I guess I can't call it a true satellite system.. our receiver points to a transponder approximately 5- miles away. The company who is providing it to us is www.whatwire.com - they have not updated their website as of the last time I talked with the guy he could get us 24Mbps if we needed it for a dedicated service.
I suppose I should have clarified also.. for us to get 1.5Mbps through a T1 line it would cost around $600/month. With whatwire I can get that for around $200. Understand?

Fixed Wireless...I understand now. Sounds cool.

I'm hoping so anyway. It's kind of funny really.. but if the project were another block or two closer to town we could get cable or dsl very easily. But we are one street outside of city limits and they want an arm and a leg to extend the cable coverage. Oh well - we'll see how it all works out.
