Well, you pay a price for living in the beautiful woods of Michigan. No Cable, no DSL, Dish iffy, and a dial up modem. A slow dial up modem. Today we got a new connection thru the phone company. Not as fast as cable, but at least I can watch quilting stuff on You Tube with only a few pauses. Before, a 4 minute video took over 40 minutes...

isn't it great?? I went from dial up to DSL this year, also through the phone co. Now if they only had competitive pricing... or some competition..... $35/month for their slowest DSL.

I used to have dial-up. By the time something got loaded to watch I forgot what it was about. Bundled Phone, DSL (slowest available $29.95 per mo.) and dish network from phone co. I got a $5 per mo. discount by doing that. Really enjoy the DSL

Remember moving up from DSL. Definitely an occasion for a happy dance.
