Windstream Communications provides only about 20% of what I am paying for. I have a 12MB connection and only see about 1MB in the afternoon. It is a little faster in the mornings before 10:00am, but still very slow. I have seen speeds below 56k on many occasions.

I refuse to get cable for my internet. Yes, the hypothetical top-end speeds are faster than DSL, but the way the nodes are set up where I am, it's a single node for an entire neighborhood, which means you are sharing "your" bandwidth with that entire neighborhood. DSL is a single link to the service provider, over the phone line.

Plus, cable companies can legally monitor everything you do, whereas DSL can't (yet, at least).

Unfortunately pretty much anything we do, say, places we travel to and things we buy are being monitored and recorded in one way or another so the source of ones internet connection is pretty irrelevant really. If someone thinks they are safe from watching eyes they are extremely naive. The age of big brother is here and WE are the enemy to be watched. Sadly we've proven to be a society that in many ways cannot be trusted to be civil and control ourselves. But we get what we allow!!! I might add that government is just as out of control as we too, if not moreso.

I will not answer really stupid or ridiculous questions. Over the years, you should know better. At least I hope you should.

Really?

Perhaps you'd like to tell us all about your whacko chemtrail conspiracy you think the government is perpetrating upon an unsuspecting public?

Don't need to discuss an issue that I have explained a dozen different ways. When someone is stupid, then that stupid person has a really hard time in understanding complicated subjects. Sticks with simple words and phrases like--- oh, what?, I sorry, I don't know, um, do what? And you will make it fine.

But those dozen ways were all total nonsense to everyone who read them. I couldn't agree more with your comments though, you do that very well, 2-word phrases and evade issues.

You remind be of a website I tried to access recently - 404!
