Mail me one end of an Ethernet cord, Fink. You can use my connection.

Nah, standard mid-range service from Comcast. Been on it for a few years, actually; however, I would like to upgrade at some point. Comcast HQ is fairly close to where I live. If I go down to the Pike I can see the tower. Since I'm within the HQ's AoE, my Internet speeds are doubled and do +5 damage to undead enemies.

We pay for 1.5mb/s, but we've only ever gotten 10% of the advertised speed for all of our plans. The fastest download I've seen my PC hit is 165kb/s, which is pretty paltry compared to what's advertised.
