    Default DH is in trouble

    Without telling me, my DH downgraded our internet speed to the. slowest. they. sell.
    So, how do I find out? I click on the Download Links for Winter Romance, the Monthly Mix (<---- go check out the kit if you haven't yet!), and OMG, it says "1 hour" to DL one of the links (I'd clicked on 3...the other 2 said like 30 minutes each). So I just grumble to DH "What the heck? Why is this so slow?!" And he just shrugs and says "Oh, I downgraded our internet. It's not a big deal." NOT A BIG DEAL?! I'm an impatient woman. Very impatient. I don't have an hour to wait for stuff to DL when it used to take like 3 minutes to DL! So, if I'm not around, it's because I'm selling plasma, a kidney, and whatever else I can so that we can get our 1.3MB/sec speed back! lol

    I would be p****d too if DH downgraded my Internet speed without discussing it with me. Hope that you'll get your faster speed back soon!

    I can't believe how annoyed I am about this. I know I don't "need" fast internet lol. It's a want, not a need! But I think DH doesn't understand why I want faster internet: I'm a SAHM, whose family lives over 1,000 miles away. Some days the only interaction I have with other adults is by computer, so of course I want my email to load quickly! And I want things to DL quickly so I can click every DL link at once instead of clicking one at a time over a period of hours--I don't have the patience to worry about checking the DL status.
    And yes, I realize that the internet used to be dial-up modems and very very slow. But that doesn't mean I can't want my fast interwebs back lol.

    luckily with hubbs being in IT and a gamer I don't think I will have to worry about this (Although he tried to do away with internet when we moved!!). We even keep him on wired internet so my DL ing won't slow his game down!

    I feel for ya Sara, we could start a help Sara keep her fast interwebs FB page!! Then we could let others pay for your interwebs instead of you selling body parts!! Oooooh, we could get a collab together to sell.

    lol Missi, that cracked me up! He has super fast speed at work and he doesn't DL anything at home. I think he just didn't understand that I DL probably 2 to 10GB per week (depending on CT reqs and good ol' DS sales lol). Plus there's streaming music and I watch Netflix on my computer/Wii. HELLO, I need fast internet! Shouldn't a guy be happy that his wife wants faster internet speed? (Shoot, I wanted a 55" flat screen and he only wanted 36". The guy at Best Buy was like "Dude, listen to your wife on this." LOL! We compromised on 40" with a promise we'd get a projector screen when we buy a house.)

    I'm so thankful I don't have to deal with that. If anything, Josh would hook me up with the faster internet.

    Sarah, want to trade husbands? Our names (although spelled differently) are the same, so they wouldn't even have to learn a new name! I'm going to call today and get a faster speed. If he can "turn it down" without telling me, then I can turn it back up without telling him!

    Sara...nothing personal but i doubt i'd be on the list to help pay for better service. i can't afford my own. i pay almost $100 per month for very very very slow internet and can only use 10g a MONTH unless i want to DL between 1-7am!!!!!! and watch netflix or a movie...heck i can't even watch a 2 min YouTube video without loading it, pausing it for about 30 mins til it fully loads

    but i'll help with yours if u can get me real internet where i live!!! its only 100 yards from my house and everyone says too bad!!!! arghhhh

    do hope u get it back on fast again though...it definitely does suck

    guess I'm a tad late
