    you can uncap it ;)

    i dont recomend it because you'll get caught in about 15 minutes, but you will get 6gbps downloads.(again, for 15 minutes)

    And paint it yellow with racing stripes. That always works.

    And you don't get the speeds you pay for, I get way more than what I pay for ;)

    OK, step-by-step guide:

    1) Buy a house a block from a DSL base station
    2) Sign up for DSL from your phone company for $40 Canadian/month

    :cool: Yea, I can see ours from my back alley, plus there are a good number of people around here with cable, so DSL is way faster for us, and they're the same price.

    Keep the discussion clean please. irocracer, your Windows 2003 Server download thread + uncapping modem thread = bad. Please read our CP rules at the top of the page.

    I could be wrong, but the last I heard, the coax wire used by cable companies can only support about 30mbps. DSL had been up to 250-300mbps (doesn't mean you will get this to your house, but the technology is there to do it).

    From a technical standpoint, uncapping your modem is bandwidth theft and I'm sure the cable company would love to treat you as a cable theft criminal. The best you can do is check out the dslreports site mentioned before and tweak your computers to handle the bandwidth or contact your cable company and find out how to get your bandwidth upgraded...
