  1. I'm on 110th and central park west and my building has rcn.  Right now my only two options are rcn or verizon dsl.



    I appreciate verzon dsl consistency in speeds as advertised, never have any problems, but they speeds as advertised are kinda slow (15/0.84mbps)


    I was looking to get RCN at 50/6 or even 75/10.   I've never owned cable internet before or even from RCN.  I don't know what to expect.  If I expect advertised speeds at 90% of the time regardless of time in my building/neighborhood would I be disappointed?


    All RCN packages at their speeds seem to be way cheaper than Verizon fios or time warner cable.



    if I'm forgetting an ISP in NYC/Manhattan please let me know so I can see if it's available to me



    Also what taxes and extra fees add up to when paying for RCN internet?

  2. Hello I am using verizon DSL at 3mb down 768 up

    Can someone please recommend me a setting for me?

  3. is this one of those deals like, "$55 bucks for you first xx months?" then after that period the price goes to $179.95 - $199.95 as advertised on the verizon fios website?  Or is this a permanent plan for NYC verizon fios customers?  And why is there no fios in Manhattan!?!?! The busiest city in the world where all the money is!!! bahh lol.  Anyways, my first question is the only one that really needs answering lol.  Any help much appreciated.

  4. Okay, well after days of procrastinating I finally called up Verizon DSL and we found out that my IRQs are kinda fucked up.  It appears that a lot of drivers are using the same IRQs including my network connection drivers along with my video card drivers.  Anyone know what to do?  First thing comes to mind is setting each driver with it's own personal IRQ? But I could be wrong?  Although if i am correct, how do i go about doing this?  My computer manufactuer is being very greedy and wants to charge me 110 dollars for over the phone warranty assistance for a year, when only i want to solve this problem alone.  Can anyone here help me with this issue?

  5. god dosen't love me :(
