May be getting DSL!!!!Finally!!!Good bye Mr.Winmodem...Hello Mr.80ping...nice to meet you.Maybe my multiplayer will finally look as good as single player
768 down/256 up + long distance for $50 isn't too bad is it?I've done research on DSL plenty of times but not too much since it was never availible in my area.

Nope - cable modem is now $45 in my area - $35 if you already have digital cable service.

Awwwww....you guys
Maybe I can actually host a server once I get it going.386kbps upstream should handle it?

now that sounds like the old guido - Mr. rant.

IT'S TWU! OH IT'S TWU! IT'S TWU! IT'S TWU!

Super, 316KB upstream will host a server. I'm guessing 8 people on a unmodded server.

For the last sunday DDM Clan challenge that we had, 16 people played and I used 500KBS of outbound and 200KBS of inbound according to my T-1 stats.

But who knows!

No..its not At&T..its a local telco.One of the baby bells..Bellsouth.
Well......I had hoped I could run a modded server with the master weapon pack but I guess that would be insane
500 for 16 people?Most of them had to have had their netrate set around 10k.You bad bad people...raining on the dialupers' parade
Maybe I make it mandatory to set your net rate to 4k or something?
Anyway,this is my first true broadband experience(that I have for home use).I have a DirecPc Sat system but it's not really broadband.Sure you can download fast with it but the upload is 56k speed,the latency is almost 1 sec,the speed drops bigtime during peak hours because it is shared bandwidth.and they limit how much I can download in a hour(160meg)...So I'm eager to get rid of those cons.
Blazing Saddles huh?....."Badges?We don't need no stink'n badges!" or "Excuse me while I whip this out"

Hmmm, any way that the server could dictate client netrate? My guess is prolly not, but that would help with lag sometimes, I think.

BTW, my dad has Bellsouth dialup service-he likes it pretty well.

server dictates max net rate if the server is set to 4k then thats as high as it will go
