You have been waiting years for cable like I have been waiting years(and still) for FiOS.

I'm STILL waiting for them to announce they're going run some sort (any sort!) of hard wired broadband to me. I submitted site surveys to Time Warner twice and the reply was pretty much "Screw you we can't make up the cost of running the cable in 3 months or less"

DSL runs over phone lines that are already there.

I'm with MouSE. All you should need is a DSL like a modem that just pumps your stuff into packets and stuffs it into the same hard line as your dial-up. Merry Christmas! I'll bet Santa'* coming!

Here is a link to a site with a feature that is supposed to optimize your dsl connection:

TCP Tweak test | DSLReports.com, ISP Information

If anyone tries it, share the results. I will try it at home tonight.
