What type of Internet access have you?

Are you like me, dial-up, when at home & LAN at work or what.

The area of Ireland I live in BB is not available, there are a few "wireless" operations just starting up but i don't think we cna get them either. It drives me crazy to hear Eircom harping on about how many customers, 200,000+ they have provided their service to ..... yeah all those live in DUBLIN [ no offence to dub's } or Cork or other *big* cities.

I'll old & grey, ok i'm most of that already, by the time rural ireland becomes internet friendly.

You may ask why do i need higher speeds, to surf here of coures .....not..... its to get those porm images downloaded much faster

Re: What type of Internet access have you?

I have something that is euphemistically called Broad band.
I think this either has something to do with an all-girl music group or porn or maybe both

My network at home ,linking 4 computers, is both wireless and cat 5 cabled

Re: What type of Internet access have you?

Broadband at home, LAN at work....but since the wonderful company I slave for blocked the site I had to choose the home option. They must have thought I wouldn't do any work....as if.

Re: What type of Internet access have you?

Dial-up at home, but I never use that for AO.

Just waiting for the day when they block my AO access from work because of the bandwidth I am taking up........

Re: What type of Internet access have you?

From memory i have 4 Mb downstream, 256 up, on a cable modem. And of course WiFi. I dont like wires much (or just maybe I was to lazy to drill a hole in the wall ). Both my laptop and desktop computer is Wifi

Re: What type of Internet access have you?

Broadband at home which runs on a wired and wireless LAN - 5 computers at the moment

Broadband at work - no blocking except for porn sites which are blocked by the ISP anyway

Re: What type of Internet access have you?

I live in a Village so too far from BT main switchbox so I'm stuck with BT Yahoo dialup & onspeed accelerator

Would love Broadband though
