gloomy sundays

Sometimes, a slow internet connection can be a real hindrance in posting during gloomy Sundays like this. Before I had a phone line – a faulty one – dedicated only to the dialup, it showed up more-than-a-thousand-bill every month without the quality of the service. One thing is for sure; no more Cybernet. Now that I’ve got a cable connection (not the proper cable mind you, but a LAN) things are only slightly better. And I heard people in Islamabad are soon going to enjoy cable net over (optic?) fiber cable. Now, I’m jealous!

    Yes but what kind of speeds will they be getting on that optical fibre connection? I doubt anything more than 256k which is still really bad.

    Yep, I guess the maximum would be 256. But I don’t have the details. Can check for you if you’re interested.
