    Had to switch internet provider. They are using the same verizon tower as i had with verizon themselves. I'm with mellinicom now. It's SLOW and sometimes pages won't even load.
    I did a speed test and it came back as:
    Ping -- 35
    Upload -- 1.96
    Download - 11.54

    Are these super slow numbers? I don't have access to any internet up where I live. Except satellite, verizon and now mellinicom which uses verizon towers. With verizon, I got fast speeds but the cost was killing me and the capped data usage was SO LOW, I had to constantly watch my usage and sometimes stop using the computer completely towards the end of the month so I wouldn't go over. They have now raised their overage rates

    Its 5X or more what I'm currently getting :D so no its not super slow.

    I think the issue with pages not loading is nothing to do with speed.
