Uhh, I do know that Verizon Fios should not have that low of a speed...? That is surprising... - http://www.verizon.com/home/fios-fastest-internet/

By the way, those internet plans though that Verizon Fios has at that link, I am indeed jealous when I saw that... Absolutely no ISP in Canada does equal download speeds and upload speeds for Internet unfortunately... :cry: Verizon Fios customers in the United States are lucky... The pricing is awesome as well... :o
its actually DSL internet.

Oh it's DSL? I see then... That would explain the slow speeds. I'm sorry about that. My apologies... Like I said before, the DSL that I have at my mom's house can go up to 15mbps download speeds. However over here in Canada, a Canadian could get DSL speeds up to 50mbps download if their area is eligible, thanks to two reseller ISP's in Canada that offer it. Those two reseller ISP's in Canada are: Distributel, and Teksavvy...

I did watch a few of his videos, but I did not know that this user was Canadian though... That is nice to know. :) Yes, dial-up internet is always painful on today's modern internet. VERY slow, and that you cannot get anything done at all... You can see that by searching for YouTube videos on users who tried to use today's modern internet on dial-up internet today. Highly impossible... That is why ISP's who use Satellite Internet for broadband are looking for users to replace dial-up internet, usually and commonly for people who live in rural areas, and are currently using dial-up internet in that said rural area...
