    Default ISP Upgrade

    Right now I have Road Runner internet service provider. I am not sure what you guys have outside of the United states, so yeah. There is this new upgrade called Road Runner Turbo which your speed upgrades to about 8mbps at the cost of 9.95 more (US dollars of course) So is 8mbps worth it? Here is the link http://www.timewarnercable.com/nc/pr...nnerTurbo.html (Just so you know this website is for North Carolina ONLY just to make things clear ^-^)

    What do you have know? 4Mbs down and 256kbs up?

    You just have to weigh it. What do you need? Is your current speed fast enough for you? Do you need the upload speed upgraded for something?

    If you don't need the speed, and are happy with how fast you get things now, then skip it. I mean, for 120$ a year, you can do a lot with that if you don't spend it on the internet.

    If your games are lagging, or your sharing the internet with a lot of other computers in your household, or maybe you have a little webserver your running out of your home, then yeah... extra speed might be worth it too you. If it's strictly downloading... well go to the bargan bin in Best Buy and get 12 of the 10 dollar movies... that should hold you over the extra time it will take you to download if you don't get the upgrade (at least that's my opinion).

    To me... no. It's not worth it, but I'm a guy that survives with 56k half the time (barely).

    Well for me it isn't how fast the page loads or anything its the downloads. I am constantly downloading music and movies. Like Volvogga said it is what suits you.
