As a companion to the Resolution thread;

What type of Internet Connection do you have, or usually come here with?
Dialup? 28.8 56k Cable Modem etc?

I figure that at some point we can be less concerned about page loading times, which is affected by picture size and resolutions etc. But I think that many people are still on dialup connections.

Cable modem here. Once you've gone broadband, you'll never go back! [Linked Image]

Cable Modem at home, which is where I surf the most. I do have dial up 56k at the shop just for emergency info. Cable or DSl is the only way to go and I agree, once you try broadband, you'll never go back.

I've got dial-up 56k, here.
Broadband is way too expensive to have at home, over here, it's cost limits it to commercial use. [Linked Image]

I've had cable modem at my house for about 2 years now. Dial up service was just way too slow.

DSL here. Had it about 2 years, and am quite happy with it. The connection is shared with 2 other computers via a router/firewall, with no noticeable speed loss.

Dial-up here. I wish I could get DSL, but the way I use the internet, the current
financial situation here, and the fact that the DSL provider available to me has only a full rate DSL plan, basically calculates as no DSL. If they had a DSL lite plan, I'd jump right at it.

I have had cable modem access for about 4 years and can't imagine what it would be like to go back to dial up.
