I remember those days, and good riddance to them!

Comcast doesn't ever have a steady up and down stream for me, they always seem to be able to slow me down some way.

yeah a friend of mine was still on aol 56k dialup until about 3 months ago. 15/5 mbit uncapped + digital premium(hbo, showtime, etc..) cable = $115. thinking on getting basic cable. it should be around $65-$70 then.

Dial Up Modems are still a sad reality in India. You know something? Blazing fast internet speeds here are just 512 kbps lines. Nothing compared to global speeds.
