This is a question I got reading the Download/Hard copy discussion.
It's just a little poll but I need many responses to get a clear picture! So, do you have a broadband or a dial-up connection and do you have data limits for downloading?

(If this post doesn't fit here, please kick me to the right place! smile)

Broadband, but not stable enough to download a full size game.

I wouldnt like to try downloading a 1 gigabyte game or bigger on 56k dial up lol. Broadband is the way to go, actually im suprised 56k dial up is even sold to the public considering broadband can be as cheap as dialup used to be.

Well, I'll break the trend here: 56K dial-up connection for me. Maybe one day...
The answer is....chocolate! Who cares what the question is.....

Broadband, but, like Jenny100, not stable enough to download a full-size game.

So far the broadband users are the majority, that's exactly what I suspected when I started this topic, not because I think there are a lot more broadband users but the people who have a broadband connection are more active! I wish all the dial-up members react also, because I want to get a clear picture on this subject.

Mad, don't worry! This is a topic that I put here just to cure my curiosity and not for any commercial reason! Sometimes I post in topics only to see what the reactions will be. devil

Our only choice for anything faster than dialup (out here in the sticks)
is Satellite internet. Not exactly Broadband, but faster than dialup.
And right now the dish is filling up with snow, so I might not even
be able to send this till later. :eeksnoman: happydance

Broadband on the desktop, dial-up on the laptop, but the laptop also has a WiFi card so it can be used in one of those free WiFi places that abound in the US (Barnes & Noble, Panera Bread, etc.) and this is convenient both on the road and for occasional large downloads for speed. wave
