Attempting to download 2G TV shows and 6G movies puts a bit of pressure on your intarweb connection. I just found out that my cable company doubled the bandwidth in my area, to 6mbit, for free - over 1 month ago. Yet I am still only getting 3mb, even after several modem reboots. Hmm, that modem I am leasing is huge, old, and looks like someone drug it behind a car for a few miles. When they gave it to me last year, my first thought was "you've got to be kidding me". It is probably a 1st generation device made back in the mid 90s. Sure enough, a quick call to the cable company confirms that I need a newer modem, -one that goes to 11. Sometime next week I should have bandwidth, sweet bandwidth.
