I'm in the same boat
i'm afraid that dishonor goes to me......
it's still fine for web browsing and streaming videos (at the lowest quality possible), but not for much else.
Bro, that is awful. I constantly am talking to my dad about getting better internet. He is stubborn as all hell though.
How do you deal with such terrible internet?
yea, i know right! but i suppose the reason it's so cheap is because it's only $20 a month. i was thinking about upgrading as well, but this is all i can afford at the moment. this internet is really bad compared to other people's internet, i can't play many online games or stream videos at anything above the minimum settings (well i can, but it would have to pause so many times -_- ). after dealing with it this long, i suppose i've just learned to live with it.
I got through to my dad when Netflix continously buffered, so he decided to get us Time Warner Cable cause U-verse wanted $250 in installation fees if we just got internet.
Likewise, its just annoying because I could get so much stuff done if I had better internet.
So I have no idea what these numbers mean, but they look small and sad :(
Mine is pretty good ^^
Why is it that some people who are never going to use even 10% of their internet potential have really freaking good internet speeds? This is madness.
LOL,he is right.
Meh, I thought it would be way worse.

I use mine, along with my parents. Probably me the most due to all the uploading I do.
Well, we got a nice package because we signed up for Verizon when they first entered the area. I do a lot of uploading for this site, and all of our television service is now through Hulu, so we definitely get our money's worth, haha. But yeah, as I said, most of the general public does not need speeds that are that fast.
eh it is pretty slow
