Non-expert needs help choosing between DSL or Cable
Posted on 2002-06-03
I am currently using AOL 7.0 with the DSL modem they provided, plugged into a USB port. Sometimes it seems fast, other times I can't believe how slow pages load. Also everything I've read refers to "instant on" or "always connected"; which isn't how mine works, I still have to sign on, etc.
My head's full of "the old BBS days" and no matter how much I try to get up to date, I just get more confused. All I want is to find a way to access the internet, in the quickest, cheapest and most efficient ways possible.
Without all the hype.
Help me please?!
