    [​IMG] Not for me. Me and my brother share a 5MB Up/2MB Down connection.

    I seriously got fed up with Dial Up about 3 years ago... Ugh.. 5 KB downloads were not fun.

    Nope I use a crappy arse slow 1.5MB connection.

    Lot better than dial-up but still too slow.

    [​IMG] That's not too slow... Better than most connections..

    1.5Mbps? I'm guessing Quest DSL.

    3mbps DSL here. I've seen faster, but it's respectable enough for me. We've had it for years,

    314KB per second down and about 56KB per second up.

    Yup. It dial-up really sucks. Takes several hours to download one game. I always try to download as much as I can at a friends house. Plus, my parents get really pissed that it blocks the phone line and that important calls might come in.

    Usually I start the download, and then while I'm waiting, seriously, I can go out and watch a movie, go-kart, eat at some sushi place and come back, and it will only be 3/4 done. Or I could put a black top hat over my computer, take it off and, voila, a ROM!

    Well, when I had Dial-Up, the DS didn't exist yet.

    Still, I feel for you man...

    ~You got any chance of upgrading soon? I have a dime that you're gonna feel alot better if you get a faster connection. [​IMG]

    I know, I'm trying too. I bug my parents all the time about it. Espicially when they go on. "How come this is going so slow?" "Well, if we had CABLE OR BROADBAND and not DIAL-UP you'd be there right now. And then we'd all be happy" But no, doesn't work.

    I'm at 770KB(not Kb) download and 60KB(not Kb) upload, I used to use 150KB DSL recently, and before that, 4 years of 3KB dialup.

    lag is SO underrated! [​IMG]

    No dial up for a some years already, but my connection is disgustingly overpriced.

    I thought you were gonna post a billion pictures to lag my computer, thank goodness you didn't. [​IMG] How much for your internet provider? Just wondering.
