    Yea no joke. I remember having 28.8k and waiting 20 mins to download a song on napster. People will always complain because its not good enough for them. I love the speeds everyone has now days.

    When you go back home I'd get two computers.
    Upload on one and download on the other.

    I miss the days when, if you wanted to talk to a friend in China, you had to go to the airport, stand in line for an hour to get a ticket, stand in another line to board the plane, wait for the plane to take off, wait for the layover, get to China, get off the plane, wait for a bus, wait for another bus, find a translater to help you find your way around, find your friend's house, knock on the door, and then wait 8 hours on the porch when you find out he just left for school. Now all you have to do is hit send.

    I don't know how old your graph is, but im in the us and have 15mbps for 35 dollars a month.

    Now there is a difference between megabits and megabytes.. They advertise in megabits to make it look faster. basically take your advertised speed and divide it by 8 and that will give you your megaBYTES per second. that gives me less than 2. which is fast.

    anyways, you can tell the difference by looking at the abbreviation, too. MBps is megabytes and Mbps is megabits.

    Mine's not terrible. I only get pissed when I'm trying to stream porn and it takes forever to wait for the orgasm to load. Porn time is sacred and must be timed right, no time to wait for buffering!

    pause until it loads.

    if you've already started, you can probably find some pics of me online to hold you over until it's ready to go again.

    It's from 2009.
    I don't know much about the minutia of it all...I just know South Korea is ridiculously faster than most of the world...and I would like to live there because of that.


    South Korea is already ahead of the global technological curve but it is looking to forge even further ahead by boosting broadband speeds across the nation.
    It is not aiming at 100, 200 or even 500 megabits per second (Mbps). Instead it has devised a national plan for 1,000Mbps (that's more than 15mbps, right? :D) connections to be commonplace by 2012

    No, no, I have to sneak it in while Daniel is sleeping, or else I'm out of luck, because he's rarely not home if I am. Not because he'd care if I did it while he was awake (most of the time anyway), but because I like my private time sometimes, too. Haha.
