    Hey I just got a new computer and its freaking awesome, especially since my old one was literally the slowest one in the world. This new one is a Dell Windows XP and we're thinking about getting DSL or Cable to go along with it. Any suggestions on which one I should get?

    Get DSL. Fast and RELIABLE (Cable's reliability is average...), easy to install, it's the best.

    As for the T3 : PAY IT ;) :D .

    I'd like to add one thing about cable, the more people in your neighborhood that have it, the slowest your Internet gets.

    :lol:

    Ah sorry. I meant when you start the computer back up when the computer goes down. We have to restart the modem and then make all the other computers in the house shut down and start back up at the same time. It's just a pain.

    Unless you live within 1800 meters of your phone company, get cable.
