I was wondering if anyone has their internet service through their cable company? Hubby and I were thinking about it, we currently have Compu Serve and are not thrilled with it. I was wondering if you have your internet through the cable can more than one computer in the house go on at the same time, do you need a special box for it like cable channels? Remember I am a computer retard so any advise is greatly appreciated. Also, what is the average cost for this service, are you glad you have it, would you go back to the dial up service?
So many questions, sorry.

I noticed that my cable modem speed varies. During "high peak" usage times, the speed counter will register around 1000 kbps. Apparently as more people who have cable modem service (with my company) uses the internet, speed will be affected.
Usually, though, the connection speed is between 1200 and 1400. Oh yea!
But then again, I'm up at 4:00 A. M. (during my night off, no less!
) when most NORMAL people are sleeping.
P. S. I just check the modem speed: 1516 kbps
