    I currently have a dial-up 56k connection and am thinking of investing in a broadband connection. I've heard of varying experiences - that the advertised 10x speeds never materialise etc.

    What do you think?

    I love my Road Runner. I could barely get 31Kbps when I was on dialup because I have a bad phone line connection. My RR certainly exceeds 10x speeds, if not more.

    Had dial-up.

    Have Starband at home.

    Have cable at work.

    Answer......I'll never go back to dial-up. If there is no other option for me but dial-up, i'll sell my computers.
