Curse My Internet

Slow speeds,
You have got to hate them!
All i know is, they drive me up the wall. constantly getting speeds slower then 2mbps! And this is on an ADSL2+ connection!

I used to receive speeds around 3.5mbps but after changing to a plan with more bandwidth, it seems my ISP has throttled me.

This makes downloading hell! I use steam as a way to purchase most of my games and with such slow speeds, even a 4gb game is an over night job. I'm sure I don't have the worst speeds on the planet, but with me being such an internet dependant person, my speeds sure do frustrate me!

'Til next time,

  1. That's too bad. I'm on 25down/1.5 up ATM and it's great. :)

  2. I run on a smooth connection aswell.
    But with ups and downs.

    Not everything works as intended ;)

  3. Internet connection is great!

  4. There is no such thing as a good internet connection.... there is always something else to screw you over.

  5. i cant keep my eyes of your page mmmm

  6. I've had internet trouble too lately. I was on a wireless network, which kept cutting out. I got too frustrated with it after a few days, now I use an Ethernet cable and it's so much better.

  7. I couldn't agree with you more man. I actually pay for 21down/9up and I certainly don't get what I pay for, but then again Comcast isn't known for being that good to it's subscribers. I've called a thousand times and they don't do ANYTHING for me.

  8. Oh man I feel you there, I've been using clear wire for a year now. and it's been such a headache. when Hulu came out on the xbox 360 I went ahead and got a subscription and pretty much started watching old shows 24/7. Although they claim unlimited internet, I recieved an email saying that they would be throttling my bandwidth because I use more than the average user. A year of torrent downloading nothing, a month of hulu and now they're mad. :(

  9. We're currently in a 768 kbps connection.

    I'm contented with this! :)

    You are the lucky ones...
