Ok, so 'dial-up' is not associated with speed- usually- I still think I am entitled (entitled?) to better connections. My dial-up provider and I have a discussion going on because I am often seeing 30-40Kbps speeds when I have been 'treated' to 52+Kbps previously. The difference in downloading is close to astronomical...really. Question: Is it the phone company or the provider who determines dial-up speeds? (PS: I am in a part of the country where the natives still greet cable with a 'Huh?') Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
