Nothing but the best for this place!

Of course I get vastly superior access at home.

at work:


this brings up a topic I was thinking of post today or soon, we can start a new thread if we need too:

does anyone use DSL by choice instead of cable?  When I move next month I'm thinking of switching to save money.

I don't stream movies and only download a mp3's every once in a while.  ever since the baby and being so busy at work, I really only use my home internet connection for general surfing - email, facebook, esink, news, etc.   The only downside is that I do occasionally do video chat via skype or google (a couple times a month)

I'm wondering if the savings is enough to offset the slower speeds... and will I even notice?

I've thought about downgrading maybe less mbs from cable. Like you (Micah), i don't really download or stream a lot of stuff.....for the most part, but there are times when i need to download stuff for work; for example just last week i downloaded 6  GIGS worth of oracle software to try things out.. so i don't, know it's a tough choice.

EDIT:
@Perspective do you guys really need that much speed at work? (am sure it's nice though, just curious)

It's a university (also, a university known for Computer Science), so ridiculously fast internet is somehow justifiable.

the faster the better. I was just curious if you guys had some huge processing experiment or some stuff where you needed all that.
Cool though.

We use DSL, the slowest available I think. I'll do the speedtest when I get home.

We're probably going to upgrade. The price isn't very different, and we plan on streaming a lot more, and possibly adding vonage or something like that. But as far as regular use the DSL is fine. In fact, we can still stream netflix and enjoy the show. When we watch youtube from our GoogleTV we can see the difference, and downloading or uploading does take a while (e.g. uploading photos to Picasa or sending an email with a big attachment).
