    INTERNET CONNECTION?

    Discussion started by misteraven - Jun 30, 2003

    I'm going to ask a series of questions that will hopefully give me some ideas about how you guys connect. We're considering upgrading some of our hardware, so your input might help us streamline the process a bit. Anyhow, please take a moment and give a few quick replies to the following questions...

    1. Do you connect via BROADBAND (DSL, Cable, T1) or by MODEM (56k or less)

    2. Where do you connect from most? Home, Work, School?

    3. Do you generally use webmail (Yahoo, Hotmail, etc) or POP3 email (Regular type emails - Outlook, Entourage, etc), or both?

    Speed is usually pretty good. Whenever it isn't...I suspect its a problem on my end of the spectrum.

    1) ISDN

    2) Work

    3) Both

    56k at home... ethernet doowhackey at work, but i never respond at work (especially now that i dont have a job)

    connect the most at home.. but that could just be because it takes longer on dialup

    pop3 for official stuff, web for the rest.

    i think most of these people tha tpost 15 times a day must be on cable though, so i think this survey might end up skewed toward the higher end.

    yeah... sometime the pages just snap up but other times it will choke on smilies.

    1.) My connection is faster then my 10 base-t.
    2.) Work obviously
    3) pop3 for work, some crappy "free" email for personal.



    I had a 470ms response time to the front page of 12oz
    from the node before that. Maybe something is up?
    I mean I hit telia.net - miami in like 80ms. anyways.... hope the testing goes well.

    just because some people are holding onto the bike for dear life doesnt mean we should lower the speed limits on roads.

    faster is better... skew away.
