Pretty exciting. The cable guys just left. Now am entering the broadband revolution in earnest. Cable modem is 3Com/U.S.R. - still dependent on Earthlink ISP for upstream (with separate external analog modem also provided by Charter), but downstr. is all cable via Charter Communications. Cable install guys were very knowledgable and capable. Now will see what probs. arise over next few weeks, if any. So far, screens are loading incredibly fast, though haven't pegged the numbers yet.

Did lose connection just a few minutes ago. And have seen a slowdown at TMF within last few minutes as well, assume due to server there (overload??).

Am told that bandwidth availabiltiy will not be affected by more subscribers. We'll see.
