Re: I want 100/100

said by Ben:

So let's see, the choices are:

A) Use dial-up. To download the latest Fedora Core 8 DVD image (which is 3.18GB) would take close to a week, if you run the dial-up 24/7.

OR

B) Live with a large box nearby, but download the same DVD image in less than 18 minutes (assuming 25Mbps download).
The boxes provide TV service, not broadband internet.

read the article again. It states that AT&T's boxes provide TV and internet service.
