Soooooooo much better than 56k AOL eh? :dance:
EDIT: My connection is ADSL provided by Cincinnati Bell's Zoomtown with Fuse as my ISP. VERY good broadband service and tons better than any cable anywhere! My pings are always low (low as 20-30 in 20+ player games on very well configured and run game servers). Zoomtown + Fuse offers a $8 or so discount, plus I get a discount by having a cell phone through Cincy Bell added into 1 bill. Very nice.

i sooo envy you guys im stuck on a dial-up i dont have cable run in my neighborhood and my phonelines suck for dsl not to mention im in minnesota, right stinkin between the east and west coast, so im as far away as you can get from all the servers.
there is a good part though, having a crappy connection makes you a better player. you gotta use good tactics and make every shot count
So very true, I've only had my ADSL for 1 or 2 months now and all the intense playing I did has really helped now that I have a good ping. Playing an FPS online with dial-up requires you to really concentrate and develop prime rate skills. Now that I have broadband, those highly tuned skills can yield games like a 20:1 or more kill to death ratio. Shooting first right as I click my mouse button before the enemy can even know I'm there, rather than the damn firing delay and general time delay with dial-up.

that's with a 56ker and AOL actually, this i am using someone else's pc to check right now, but it should be the same since it also uses AOL and is near to my home. normally in AAO i get 200-370. Which is pretty good. i can play perfectly with a 56k. if i choose a good server, i may never Lag(as in get stuck) :D :rock:
