  • Broadband vs. Dialup

    Easy survey here. I would like to know what technology most of our viewers are using. Are you flying along with broadband , or are you stuck in the early 90's with a phone line dial-up connection? :chair:

    I've had cable for about 5 years. I had to use dialup recently at my brother's house... :drool: I'm traumatized for life!!

    You can never go back!!

      I have probably saved YEARS of time by using broadband vs. waiting for dialup. I'll be one of those guys who crawls out of the desert nearly dead only to find the first means of communication with the outside world is a dial-up modem...and I'd keep crawling to find something faster

              They why u whining about snipers in fps? Even if you do manage to aim and fire its going to take 10 minutes to register. Might as well just let the campers put you out of your misery

                  I'll bet ya that you get just about the same speed with the cans and string as you do with a dial up. And I have to agree with Chicken, on a dial up it's possible that you're not be dying ... the game could have ended and your reloading onto the next map.

                    If I was playing you over a 56K line I would not be working on beating you with my sniper rifle.

                        Yeah, I am not a kid or script kiddy ChickenBoy. I would be working on your PC while you were bragging about taking objective A with your sniper.
