In light of a recent suggestion to help 56k'ers, I was wondering how many people are actually still on dial-up. I was going to make a poll but there's too many possibilities, so just put your connection speed and type here.

Cable all the way!, would be nice if you would "give" the information of your connection speed. Even though you have "cable". Difference providers and prices give different speed.

My download is 800kb/sec (can download 1gig in about less then 40min)
And upload is 60kb/sec (which sucks)

By the way, whats up with these "FTW" lately? What does it means? I knew it, but i guess i have forgotten what it exactly means.

FTW = for the win. Dial up = For the loss.......... Cable use to run at about 700-800kn/sec for me, upload was around about 200kb/sec. DSL connections (atleast here in aus & dependent on connection plans) is around 256kb/sec upload.

Move to the USA, there's no such thing as an upload or download limit here~ I regularly upload over 50 gigs a month (have done over 100 in 1 month before -_-)
