Verizon re-did my entire area and I went with FiOS. I don't love it as some have, but I get Sinn type numbers wired and about 1/2 that wireless.
All-in-all, I'm happy. Before that, I had been Comcast for years.

2 Hours? I can grab a 700 MB ISO is about 10 minutes through Giganews. I have to pay for it, but it is worth every cent.

Hey Sinn, that router update you pointed me to a couple of weeks ago must have helped more than my 360 connection.

Tonight was the first time I tested since then. This is wireless, which I'm pretty damned happy with...

TFR - I am a moron. I've heard of these binaries for years. I've never known how to work them, nor understood how to get to them.
It took me a while to understand what a torrent was too.
Posting or PM'ing information on how to allegedly use such things would be wonderful.

Last time I used verizon newsgroup they severely throttled the bandwidth and only allowed 1 concurrent connection, plus their retention sucks.

Thats why you need a premium service like Giganews.

blazin, vz w/ grabit allows 8 simutaneous connections... :)
quite possible now...this was 2 years ago when I used it. But i distinctly remember the bandwidth being throttled severely. It was much slower than the connection itself.

But my Comcast is actually Suscom that just got bought out by Comcast. The infrastructure isn't up to Comcast standards I think. Sad that I'm getting beat by DSL. :(
