    They started installing in my neighborhood this last March, they roughed it in throughout the neighborhood all summer and just last week brought it to the side of my house. I guess the next step will be for them to call me to schedule the in home set-up. No communication, no updates - just like ordering a HellCat, lol :)

    I used to be so excited for this, but I'm realizing that I currently have all the speed I could possibly use. Use to play a very graphic intensive game called battlefield 3... I've used a webcam with family and friends and it looks like live TV already.... What else could you use the extra speed for... Until they come out with holographic or 3d imaging?

    Mainly I just want to get away from being Time Warner's hostage. It's good to have a choice finally and the added speed can't be a bad thing...;)
