Cable broadband. No problems with downloads at all. It's expensive but so worth it!

Live in a small town and have dial-up at 31.2kbps. Largest download I can do is about 80Mb and can take up to 6+ hours.
The one little phone company in town offers a high speed/router (with a no return option and can never be used elsewhere if one decided to move), starting at 64kbps.
Phone/internet company has no competition and has never had any competitors.

Broadband on the desktop, wireless broadband on the laptop. My ISP also offers a 1-800 dial up number for broadband users when on the road at 10 cents a minute.

Howard the Doc, its been possible to connect to the internet through a cell phone for years, but its Sllooowwww (19.6k baud). I have an Ositech card and it does work as advertised.

I have Cox High Speed Cable and just love it, it is very fast as far as downloading. Would not want anything else.

Dial up at 56k. No limit on it. Just don't download enough or on the internet enough to make it worthwhile.
Never resist a generous impulse.

Howard the Doc , Sorry I'm so late getting back to your question. We've been without power (because of the snow) which means the modem that connects to the satellite doesn't work. And, I've also been out of town.
We've been trying to get my Mom's DirecWay dish and modem worked on for a month now and it is serviced by Hughes net. I'm shopping for something better. I'm to the point of thinking that ANYTHING is better! Grrrrrr. mad
