Read it, I hope it is useful in some way. BTW my dad says I can get a Virgin Mobile phone, if I pay for it myself. If you get one too, we could txt message for 10 cents a message, or talk for 25 cents a minute (until 10 minutes when its only 10 cents a minute).

that works, but if i can land a job i'm getting a real cell for day time, but i might need a prepaid for my night time adventures. The prepaid would not be regestered in my name. thtas why

Actually, right now, I think that the rates are bad for Mobile cell fones. 25 cents a minute is not cheap! But, a good thing about those is that TXT messaging is only 10 cents. Right now, you might as well have a prepaid calling card or Set of red box tones if those still work in your area (they do in mine) for your best bet. That's probably all for today, I'll try to get on lata!

cable is shared, DSL isn't. If executed properly, DSL is better.

I agree with stank. One of the major disadvantages of cable is that it is shared. which is a big problem if you live in a neighborhood with a bunch of kids sharing their whole hd on kazza. so thne your speed could drop to like 40 kb/s

im on dsl, and it's nothing too fancy, 100+ is usually a good day for downloads. p2p is just awful, i think im a bit too far away from the switch, as i've never gotten anything over 180. and a few friends of mine are getting a meg+ on cable.

From what i can tell, it depends on your area, distance from switch, provider, and the quality or age of their systems.
