I've officially arrived at the one month mark for my cable connection and I have to say I'm officially hooked. I'm on a six month trial at $20/month, but there's no way I could go back to dialup now. Despite some initial concerns voiced by others about unexpected downtime, the connection has been almost flawless. It has only been down once, for a little over an hour. With the speedy connection I decided to upgrade my machine before the holidays with additional RAM and a larger hard drive. It's all combined to really make my time more productive. No more waiting for slow page loads and refreshes. If I need to download updates, I can now do it from home instead of waiting to do it at the office. For anyone on the fence about whether to switch from dialup to broadband, if you can afford it, broadband is a no-brainer.
