Well, even though I was not expecting too much from upgrading from a cheap no name brand 56k modem to a USR one, I was pleasantly surprised to find that my ping time was cut drastically from around 500-600 to 150-250. A major improvement, if you ask me. It kind of just saved me a whole bunch of money from not having to buy a ISDN modem. 🙂
I have not updated the news lately, mainly because there has been nothing happening. Now that I can actually surf the net at a better connect (of which I can actually see what I connect at… previously, I always connected @ 115,000…yea, right…).
I am going to check out a few more programs before I get too excited, but it is looking up for the internet.
