I just responded to a thread on this matter, but decided I might like to address it head on. Ok first off if you are going to whine that daddy controls your internet service I guess I can't help you much. The following advice is really only going to be of use to you if you are actually the one in control of your internet service. Now, for unbiased dialogue, don't rely on just my opinion, seek out others. Look no farther than here. http://www.dslreports.com/forums/all It's where all things internet and internet service are discussed. And no, you better assume these are all serious adults, so you might want to keep in mind that standard GBAtemp behaviour won't get you far. I am a customer of Teksavvy, currently considered the 'right' choice for anyone wanting better internet service. If you actually 'like' Bell keep it to yourself or I might end up saying something nasty to you involving your intellect I pay less for Teksavvy than Bell or Cable, and I get more for that less. I enjoy fast speeds, and I enjoy bandwidth you can only dream of with Bell or Cable. Not only that, but, if I actually need to talk to service, they will actually sound just like me, as they are in Southern Ontario and not friggin India. With the 'right' modem and router, being throttled doesn't happen. It's that simple. If you refuse to get the right equipment, kindly stop complaining about the throttling too. Again, I don't want to hear about your lousy allowance if that is the problem. I have found that most of the GBAtemp crowd can work minor miracles in the fine art of getting something for nothing where games are concerned. Getting decent internet service is really not that hard. But it DOES require you stop listening to the Bell and Cable ads and to throw out the Bell and Cable junk mail. For one thing, they have been known to both lie and cover up details they don't want you to hear. You only need to look in the respective forums on that link to find out the facts. In addition to games, I can download oodles of gigs of anything else every damn month thanks to my superior Teksavvy service. Good luck doing that on a limited bandwidth and throttled service like Bell or Cable. And if something goes wrong, good luck with Haboo in India. If you have to convince a parent to change, force them to look at that link, and TELL him they're paying more than they have to. My bill from Bell dropped from 45 bucks to 30 bucks. And that's for essentially the same residential service. Tell your parents they make the move, and get a free lunch out each month in savings. That should make them happy eh.
