We have Comcast Cable internet, so it's very fast. It slows down when three of us are all using our laptops at once. But, still even then it's faster than my friend's AT&T connection. Damn, that thing is like surfing the web in 2001. My mother has, like, NetZero, and her connection is SO slow. "But, it's only $10.00 a month!" Yeah, and it takes her half an hour to download one picture.
We found our problems a few months ago were due to an old router. They need to be replaced every 2 years, on the average. Ours was about 5 years old and was getting slow as hell. It was even effecting the desktop it was attached to.
