Sup Bama, how the heck are ya. Tell BB i said hello and hope all is well. get your Butts in game !!

We are doing pretty good actually. I do not see us getting in game any time soon though. Cable is still way down the road, and they want big bucks to get it to us... like 7K or better... ridiculous. I may try to piggy back an ethernet extender off my inlaws, they are about 1000 feet away. They have DSL, but it would be enough to game. Good to hear from you Budman!!!

Hello to you and BB! Hope to see you both playing again soon. Get some multi or single mode fiber ran. Price around for your best deal. Getting it spliced will have some cost as well. I have some 1gb single mode media converters you can have. Pm me if your interested.  If the line of site isn't to hateful this is a cheap option as well. I could help you with the setup if needed.

I must be out of the loop, did you guys move to the boonies or something? Is everything ok?

Glad to hear from you though

Sorta long story.. but try to make it short.

AT&T sucks.... that's the short story.

A little more detail. We lived in a double wide trailer on 30 Acres. Trailer was near paved road. We had CRAPPY 1.5 Mbps DSL there, but could play. 2 years ago we built a new house on the backside of same property, probably 2500 ft from trailer through the woods. AT&T won't service us at new house without big bucks, and even if we spend the money, they only will give us 712 Kbps service :sick:. Cable internet stops half a mile from us, and they want REALLY BIG bucks to get to us. We currently have Satellite internet, but latency way too high to game. So, that's the story. 2+ years since I shot any of you yahoo's. 

My last hope is to run cat 5 cable 1000 ft to inlaws and install ethernet extender devices on each end, connect to their DSL and switch to that connection when gaming. A lot of work, but it will be worth it. I've bought the equipment, just have to dig one hell of a ditch, through woods, and hook it all up. I have have had, and continue to have, a lot of family stuff going on, as well as work, so finding the time for that project has been hard. Hopefully I will test it out before too long. Believe me, you will all KNOW when I do. :)

WOW

How the hell did you play on 1.6MBPS anyway? That sounds brutal! 

Maybe we should put out a call to Idiots local to your area one weekend for a ditch digging party!

A little tech 101. A data stream for any online game is very small. Nothing near that bandwidth. So you could play many cod sessions on that bandwidth.  Now try to run a few game sessions and something else (such as some streaming video) at the same time yes everything will go to hell with the ping. A lot of other factors go into  the ping as well from point A to point B

Have you looked into all the FIOS options too?  My parents live in the middle of nowhere MN and somehow they have fiber optic based internet that's better than my cable internet service.

Unfortunately, Iirc Verizon is not doing any new Fios deployment areas. I’d be more than happy to share some of my gigabit fios with @bama and @BurnnBright  if I could.

Bama, you're the one who welcomed me on and explained nicely to me how the COD4 Freeze Tag server works and I'll always remember that and your patience ! lol But it was a little over 2 years ago so, you "disappeared" after :) I would like to play again with you and with BB with who I had the chance to play a few times on Ace. You are both missed !

Hey guys! I miss the heck out of y'all!! I still talk to a few people via text and Bama and I reminence often.  I call the cable company often but they won't budge.  They would have to run the cable 1200 feet down the road and then 1200 feet up our house.  They want $12,000 to do this but offered to cut the price to $7,500 if we dug the trench and buried the cable from the house the road.  As for AT&T, they are now only offering 768 KB.  Yes, that is KB!!!!  We would love nothing more than knock the dust off of the computers and join y'all. We're also opposed to ditch digging parties.
