I am getting ready to sign up for a cable service with fiber optics, internet service only.
What is the difference in 3-meg x 384 [ $ 49.99-p/m ] and 5-meg x 512 [ cable modem ] [ $ 59.99-p/m ] ? I don't play games on my computer. but I would like to get better streaming video. I've been using Hughes satilite service for 5-years, since we did not have any high speed service in my area, just dial up. Their service is up and down, sometimes as slow as dial up.
Please advise,
Thanks,
Carl

Those refer to the rated speed of the connection you're paying for. Usually, the first number is download speed, and the second upload. Bigger numbers are better.

Well, if you are not older than 71-years, then I may be the younger man.
