    ouch... if you have carriers in your area I would look into DSL. It is fairly cheep these days and not a whole lot more than dailup... but you get tremendous increase in speed...

    humm... and that seems slow? Well I guess it is compared to what they are getting in Sacramento... 56Mbps coming inside just 2 years...

    You know I completely overlooked that part... is that you carrier's upload speed... or just what you upload with? You might be able to tweek it abit if your carrier gives you a better speed... otherwise you might want to look into switching to a carrier with a faster upload...
