Internet compaines do seem lazy. My cable provider, when I talked to them on the phone, said that I could have two separate lines for internet. Basically 2 lines at 3mbps each. They would have to run a new line to my house, no big deal right? Wrong. After waiting a week for them to come run the wire, they finally get here and the contracter tells me they can't do it.
I said excuse me? He told me that for an unknown reason they couldn't have two cable modems in the same house. I wish I would have been there, I was at work on the phone with him. Then I said, well upgrade my slow connection. He then tells me that the internet will go as fast as my computer. wtf is that suposed to mean? 100mbps? Ha! I was having a bad dayand didn't have time to argue with him and just told him to leave.
But come morning, I'm calling them up and speaking with someone's supervisor. That's complete crap, the guy was just tooo lazy to do it, there is no reason why a completly separate line wouldn't work.
I will probably go back the the dsl provider here. At least then I had 1.5 down and 1.0 up. Cable company promised me 3.0 down and 3.0 up. That's why I switched in the first place. So I'm really pissed about the whole situation. I'm only getting 1.7 actual down (a negligble increase) and 276kbps up. :a
I would love a 100mbps connection to my home, even something like 50mbps would be very good. I've only got my PC and xbox hooked up online and how fast sustained transfer could my hdd's do? That and I'm on a 54mbps Wireless LAN.
