Am i forever doomed to bad internet

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Blahhh

I live in new jersey. The best choice i have right now for broadband is this - been like that for months.. embarq and Service electric cable both cover my town quite well and i swear i think im the only kid in sophomore year without dsl or cable. i cant play xbox live, for my ping is too high. i cant play pc games online, for my ping is too high and after 5 minutes of play on a sub-100-ping server i get 1000 ping lag spikes forcing me to leave the game. takes a shitload of time to download stuff. can BARELY watch youtube videos, alot of the time i need to restart my modem (i operate on a verizon wireless card) i pay 60$ a month for that. best part? 5GB a month cap. if i go over, 200/100 speeds for a whole month. my parents recently got a divorce, one it moving into town where both 10M ADSL2 and 10M cable service is available. the only thing is my parents might stay together. im considering sabotage at this point -_-

    Sucks dude, I know. I had dial-up for like EVER. Finally got broadband like 3 weeks ago. Best ping I've had with dial-up in any server for 1.6/CSS would be 220-230. Now I get 20-30 for best server. My mom pays 24.99 or 29.99 a month for 3mb Windstream broadband and it kicks ass!

    I would do anything for a low latency connection, let alone 3mb. sucks that embarq and SE kind of overlook the 70+ houses on my street... a little weird as well.

    I live in Canada, a country with a population that is barely 1/10th of the United States' and I have a better connection/service then that. Not to mention you live in New Jersey. I'm kind of confused as to why you can't get a better ISP provider for $60.00 a month?

    Well, this first one is local, in fact, less than 50 miles from me:
    Then I tested to Chicago, the central place for internet servers in the US. Oddly enough, I get better speed going there than next door.
    I also get pretty decent speed to San Fransisco.
    This test should make you really, really mad. I tested to Perth, Australia, a ridiculously large amount of miles away from me. I love Comcast.

    im 1/4 out of range for dsl. embarq refuses to sell me service even though i could probably still get it. service electric will not put lines up onto our street because they have lost funding from the town, (they just spent it on a fucking 14 million dollar municipal building, that we didnt even need -_-)

    My speeds aren't much better. But I could easily get faster internet, I'm just too cheap. xD
