Just had to say it.
Congrats!!! I know it's not very widespread over there. Im sure you'll be as happy as we yank DSL users are.
It's getting popular now since the 'install it yourself' variety went on sale a while ago. I'm currently paying £15.50 per month for 56k dial-up access (unmetered 24/7 access). The 512 DSL will now cost me £23 per month. No brainer!
All the telecomms company (BT) did was to enable the line for ADSL. The ISP (Pipex) did their bit and it all went live today. Works really nicely, a steady 50-60kbps on downloads. I've got the connection fed into a Netgear modem/router which then shares it between my two PCs.
I remember when I first got my cable modem. That was a happy day indeed!
I remember the day that the little LED above "ADSL Status" turned from yellow to Green... Oh joy!
Sure, rub it in.
I had ADSL all installed for my parents and... doh... turns out their phone lines are too old for it to work
Not matter through... I leave in a couple of months for college where I get OC-3 access
Three years broadband...I will never move into a place that does not have broadband.
Makes me scratch my head. I don't understand why Saskatchewan of all places was so far ahead of the curve on high speed. I've had it for 5 years. I think it's been available for 6 or 7 years here.
Started on cable 5 years ago and 2 years (Shaw are dumbasses and if I can help it will never see my business again) ago switch to what Sasktel calls their high speed extra. Which is a 3Mbit down, 640Kbit up dsl connection with 8 email addresses and 8 dhcp assigned IP addresses. Split between 4 roommates it's only $25CDN a month a piece. I haven't even been able to imagine suffering with dialup for several years now.
Happy happy, joy joy!
DSL's the shit. Now you need to download the Xbox gamespy tunnel SW, and we can all have a bit 'o fraggin fun. I wonder what the lag would be between Seattle and G.B.?
I just got my broadband connection (cable but its still fast) and I love it!!!!
Only problem, I have a 27 gig hdd. Before I got it, I had 15 gig free, now I have 3 gig free. Time for another hard drive.
Downloaded the three CD images for RedHat 7.3 overnight using GetRight.
Dustin, you have to remember that Canada has the most advanced telecommunication infrastructure on the planet!
I've had cable modem access in Alberta since 1996...SIX years.
I hear that the barbarians south of the border just invented the wheel, and are currently researching fire.
Oh yeah...congrats Rob. Welcome to the 20th century!
