We did it. After three completely unrelated people talked to me about their high-speed internet access via cable modem, we ordered it up. I had been contemplating DSL for a while, but couldn’t get the service I wanted, for the price I wanted, in our area. So we’re going with cable. If we’re lucky it’ll be installed by this weekend. If we’re unlucky it’ll be another week.
The pricing was quite good. We’re actually getting digital cable with the connection. So basically:
cable + dialup + $5 == digital cable + cable modem
So we’ll be paying about 5 bucks a month more for upgrading from dialup to cable, and getting digital cable with an extra hundred channels as well.
Happy Happy Joy Joy!
Or something like that…
