    Re: What Internet connection do you have?

    When MH started I was on dial-up (also while I was modding at NF) and had AOL, then I wised up and got rid of AOL and decided to get DSL and never looked back.

    Back then I could only dream of downloading an entire manga like Naruto in a single day - it took me three days, nonstoppable (while I was reading chapter by chapter) of downloading Naruto. Modding at NF was also extremely slow. After I changed to DSL, I immediately was able to download anime quicker, download dozens of mangas in a flash, moderate/look at threads like a madman, while having dozens of different programs running like MSN and IRC without experiencing a slowdown, and so forth... so yeah, it's definitely nice.

    Right now I'm on cable though. I don't know the specifics and I've forgotten whether it's faster or not than DSL (I think faster) but I'm still happy either way. I think I do live in an area that is really nice for internet connection though.

    I am currently using the Hughes Net internet provider. Don't get it, thats all I need to say.
    But the cost isn't to expensive, so I can't complain. Its better then Dial-up.

    To your blessed destruction

    8mb/s for like $25 maybe 8'000kBit/s down and 1'000 kBit/s up... Using some local but before it was Telia 2mb/s

    Remember when I sat on dial-up 56kbps modem... Downloaded songs while shopping, took 30mins... Oh the upgrade from 56kbps to 8mbps.... took a while to adapt to...

    100mbit/s by bredbandsbolaget, for around 35$/month. Not that I ever use the full speed, but considering the price there's no point in buying less ^^

    Upgraded some time ago to 24mbps. Not really 24mbps in reality but rather 3mbps or so but it works. Costs 'bout €20 too so it's not all that bad.

    Re: What Internet connection do you have?

    I'm sorry I'm no good in this topic because I always rent a computer in a shop. But in that shop where I frequently play, they use DSL because the owner said it's a lot faster, which is actually true!

    I remember the time when we once had our own personal computer at home, we planned to have it on Yahoo Dial-Up...

    my dear lord, it took us several hours just to connect it to our modem. Is it the dial-up or just our modem? We do not know. In the end, I had always rented computers outside. It was definitely a lot faster.
