That's nice, DSL or cable?

Since this is going to erupt into some serious e-pen0s fencing, I can just whip out mine right away.

Not gonna show mine I got 2Mb because it was cheap and I don't really need more. Not much of a downloader, the most demanding thing I do is watch Youtube videos etc. My ISP keeps sending me leaflets and letters urging me to upgrade 50Mb for $48 a month but I just don't need it
