I really live in a part of Queensland, Australia. And no company can get broadband for where I live, which sucks so much.

Lol @ Dialup. Where are you, the dead centre of nowhere? When my town got broadband, I thought everywhere else in the world already had it lol. But hey. I survived on dialup with a download speed of 4kB/s for a while... Hopefully they get Broadband in your area soon. If they don't. I'll make them lol.

Edit: Have you checked internode? I'm pretty sure they have an almost 100% coverage lol.

Doesn't the government subsidise satellite if you live in an area that can't get it where you are? My Dad lives out in rural vic as well and hes still on satellite.

**** dial-up, I hate it. Takes like an hour to download 4MB!

We should really be able to get broadband since we're only ten minutes out of town, but apparently we can't.. We can only get dial-up or satellite, in the process of getting satellite so hopefully that'll happen soon. Gah.

I spent days on the internet with a 56k back in the day... how the **** did I not kill myself during the process? Broadband rocks!
#14
I have dial up, not because I cant get braod band, its because my parents wont get broadband. They see no point in paying for internet they dont use.
And I am un employed at the moment so...

Man, I feel so sorry for you. I recently got ADSL, a huge step up from dialup. It once took me 2 hours to download 2 MB, now it takes me 34 Minutes to download 300 MB. I will NEVER go back.

Can't get broadband where I live either, but I broke down and got satellite. It's amazing except for no online gaming...
