Makes no sense. That says 4.24 Mbps, but the towers only go up to 3.6 :S

I win on wireless :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :boogie:


Gotta try with my new blackberry.

out here in the US we got a lot more wireless usage and congestion than you guys do out there.

But my wireless in my house fries yours and even your schools

Well, Alin, you'll have to tell me whether this is good, bad, or indifferent. It's the cheapest Cox Cable broadband connection (wired). It's fast enough for my purposes.

Well, like I said, it's the cheapest (read slowest) one. It's fast enough for me. The only place I had problems was a certain forum that shall remain unnamed. ;)

Good grief, I can't believe how slow my internet used to be! 8O

Here's what I've got now. Pretty impressive since I'm only paying for 50 mbps. :D
