    I'm getting a free upgrade from Suddenlink my cable and ISP. I'm getting some more cable channels(not sure which ones yet) and I have 15 mbps Internet and will be upgraded to 20 mbps. On the internet I'm not sure what I want to do,l down grade to 10 and get 15 and save like 7 bucks a month or stick with 15 and get 20. Free is good though, I've been very happy with Suddenlink:thumbsup:

    That's always good news! As for the internet, since I think you live alone and would be the one using it, dropping down to save some money, especially if you don't have any problem with the 15mb you have now,

    More is never enough. I have Xfinity and had a Netgear 802.11G router. I averaged about 15-18 Mbps and was fairly happy. Then I read the router was probably holding me back and bought a Netgear 802.11N router and average speed jumped to around 23-25 Mbps. Trust me you'll notice the difference. Even if you don't download porn, and who would, most websites are loaded with audio and video clips today. Go for the 20, it doesn't sound like much but you'll notice the difference.

    ps

    Just checked it:

    The download speed is dependent on the one sending the info. If they are sending it at 1.5 mps, then 20mps download makes no difference. Most sites don't come close to the download speeds. Now, if your were a family and had multiple online systems, very well could be a different story.

    Thanks Mayor,

    But get this. Around here, the internet strung on these poles, like phone wires, is really fast. However, if you only have the minimum package, they will actually attach something to the wire going to your house that slows it down from want is naturally.

    The bastidges!

    Can the rest of your system (modem, router, etc) handle the increased speed?

    If its just you and you mainly just browse the net, id drop down a tier for internet. 10 mbps is fast enough for that.

    I notice no difference between 10 and 30mbps when I am browsing the internet.

    I have the 30mbps to help with streaming videos, large downloads and the increase in upload speed.

    I'm happy to have this much.

    Verizon 3g mobile hotspot.

    It's the fastest thing I can get here in Missouri.

    I'm 1/2 mile or so from town, but there aren't enough houses on my dirt road for them to string cable or DSL.

    :dunno:

    If your router supports 802.11N and your WiFi adapter also supports 802.11N you should be good to go. Or if your computer is connected to the modem by Ethernet cable it should also be good.
