My dad in Ohio still uses dial-up (all that is available), which seems a little stone-age, even for not ultra-western countries.So, how do you connect to the internet?

Reply 8 of 14 darth_apple Posts: 199member July 23, 2006 3:52PM I'm still in the dark ages, I use Dial-up.. Cable and DSL are still do expensive plus my house has poor reception, Dial-Up is slow here and from what I was told if I got DSL it would still be slower then normal, so I'm not going to pay $40 for crappy DSL!! Reply 9 of 14 user23 Posts: 199member July 23, 2006 5:10PM 4Mbps cable. 512k/s down, 50k/s up for the rip off price of US $55 a month.soon, in my new temporary home, I'll be connecting via satellite.

Reply 11 of 14 vinea Posts: 5,585member July 23, 2006 9:06PM I'm curious how well FiOS is doing in competition with cable. I have FiOS and I switched from Comcast. I'll likely move to Dish vs FiOS TV as the lineup I want is cheaper from Dish and there's no real triple play discount (i.e. my Vonage is cheaper than Verizon's offering).Vinea Reply 12 of 14 project2501 Posts: 433member July 24, 2006 3:42AM I have 10Mbps/500kbps cable connection with 59?(73$)/month, but compared to connections in sweeden I feel robbed. Those bastards get 100Mbps/10Mbps for 320kr=35?(43$). Of course it's not available every where, neither is my cable modem, but it covers like 50 of the biggest towns in sweden. Damn you sweden damn you, dont even get me started with your women Reply 13 of 14 progmac Posts: 1,850member July 24, 2006 4:38AM In Cincinnati, where I lived for a bit, I read they are really deploying internet-over-power-lines, and they just started with phone service over power lines. You plug a $30 box into any outlet in the house and have internet/phone service. Their customer satisfaction has been pretty high. Price is $50 a month for internet & phone and $20 or $30 just for internet. it's especially good there, since phone & DSL is very expensive due to the Cincinnati Bell monopoly.
