    Well I live in canada and I can only get 2 isp's
    You guys in the us have it good!

    But I was on the phone with them as i have been having slow dsl ( Phone line internet)

    I was on hold for a long long time, then got to a guy that could not speck english, That was funny,

    But I was talking to him,

    I asked 4 questions,
    1. Do i have to use bell mail (@bell.ca) Could i use like @hotmail.com?
    He said, I could use "Mac Mail"
    I then told him, I thought the app was just mail
    Then he told me yes mac mail

    The second question was,
    I am running Mac osx 10.6 server would there be any problem with that?
    he said no but you should be using mac os 9.2.2 or mac os 10.2.8!
    I told him, thoes are older verson of mac os, should i not use the new ones?
    He said no.

    The third question was
    Can i use open dns
    He said no, I asked why, He said bell has dns servers, but I said dns is faster tho, and he thrented to end the call.

    my last one was, Why has apple.com not worked for the past week. ( I could not get on the site from my house I had to see most of the news and look a 10.6 from my school) (They blocked apple) :eek:

    But he told me there site is down, then he did some tests on my phone line and what not, and then hung up,

    Is that stupid or what?

    its not really any better Cable atleast for us is decided by counties etc so it can be a hit a miss for example we share a close border line with 2 Cable Companys, Charter and Comcast techinchly Comcast is closer to where we live but how the county has it we have charter wich is the worst ip/cable service ive had when we moved to TN in 06 not counting local channels we had 4 HD Channels we have now gone up to 10 i think were we use to live we had Cablevision aka I/O they have up to atleast up to 100 its pethetic and actaully are current provider is in Chapter 11 last time i heard.
