View Full Version : NSS New DSL
11-03-2004, 08:10 PM
So my old dsl company dropped MCI as a provider and as a result i had to either switch to covad and pay more for the same dsl or switch providers. Well i switched providers and not only did it take under a week (they said it would be ready on friday, my old connection dropped monday so thats only one day down) its FAAAAST (4700kbps down / 505kbps up) and with NO RESTRICTIONS (I can run all the servers i want) :D Definitely NSS
Edit: Yeah the up/down was backwards

I just can't wait for Verizon to start rolling out the FIOS service here in HB.

Sounds like you got those numbers backwards...
4.7Mbps for "up" is a bit much. :D
/me is jealous of your "connection". :D

Damn I wish i had your connection, damn comcast cable is great for downloading but sucks for sending files to friends and so forth. Damn 3megs down and a tiny 256 down which dies when I start upping more then 50kb/s

Seeing that you got an "upgrade"...
I just went and looked at my own DSL service... as it turns out, SBC Global had me on their "old Pro plan", which was capped at 1.5 Mbps down/256 Kbps up for $39.99 on a one year contract...
They have now changed me over to the "new" pro package which is 3 Mbps down/384 Kbps up... (but guaranteed to be at least 1.5 Mbps minimum down) for $36.99
So now I am theoretically twice as fast down and $3 cheaper than before... so I guess I'm pretty happy about that.
The only downside is... they never informed me that they had changed their plan structure... so I coulda had this new plan awhile ago... It woulda been nice had they automatically switched me over to the faster speed... but I guess they liked getting those extra $3 and only having to send me 1.5 Mbps or less in speed. :D
