I am using dial up since i don't used the internet the whole day. I am at work for almost 12 hours and i am too much tired when i got home... Sometimes, i can't even open the internet then. Maybe i just used it 2 or 3x a week... So, if i am gonna have a broadband connection, i guess, it is not practical to pay monthly bill which i am not using that much... How about you?

Well if you are not that net user at home, I guess dial up could work for you. But it is difficult for me to switch back to Dial up since I already experienced how fast Broadband connection really works. That is why I see to it that I go online at home and I am able to utilize the net back home.

i am using broadband and i think it is more suitable to me than dial up.i use to open internet once in a day or two.but before i was using dial up and it takes a lot of my time and money .it is very very slow compared to broadband and it is not economical .by using broadband i can post here faster and browse my favorite websites faster.as the amount of time i am using is considered i fell broadband is much cheper than dial up connection.

I am using broadband.Broadband are so much faster than dial up and dial up is damn annoying for its slow speed and connection.Even though dial up is paid per minutes but think about it,the time u spent at dial up just for waiting for it to finish loading the pages.Even though you don't use much internet,but with broadband you can download alot of things while you are not using it.you can download it and leave your computer on.

I use DSL. When looking for a internet connection, I wanted something fast yet not to expensive and the company i went through the DSL i got was cheaper than the Dial-up and is a faster connection.

When at the office i get to use the broadband. When at home i'm using the dial up connection. The broadband speed is so much faster. Especially when i log into mylot, the broad band helps in posting more number of responses.

I use the internet alot, so I use broadband. Without it I just end up sitting in front of my screen. I also like to watch videos and download a lot. That would take forever using dialup.

I'm using dial-up. I've been using it since I got a computer with an Internet connection 7 years ago. I'd love to get a faster connection, but where I live the only thing that is available is satellite and I heard it isn't as fast as DSL or cable, yet it costs more than either of these. So I guess I'll continue to wait until something better comes along that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

I'm using broadband now after 5 long years of using dial-up prepaid cards. It was slow as hell but i got used to it. Now i'm using broadband after mom agreed. We started our broadband internet just last September. Now i can go online whenever i want and i can download all the stuffs i want. Plus, surfing is easier because it's many times faster than dial-up.
