where my mom lives , there is dialup and then dsl and 5mb is the fastest

 

I have nightmares about losing my 100mb connection and living there and trying to get faster speeds.

 

 

how would you download nvidia drivers or any driver? or even windows updates on dialup. take too damn long.

WIll suck to be in the 3%.

 

People still pay for dialup? Dial Up is 'almost' free to everyone, in the entire country, who wishes to use it here, when you connect, you pay the call charges (about 2c/5 min) and thats that.
