– WHAT DO I GET?

Along with blazing speeds and an always-on connection to the Internet, Sister Lakes Cable High Speed Internet will provide you with…
Internet E-mail
E-mail is the main method of communication over the Internet. In order for e-mail to work, you need to have an e-mail address and know the e-mail address of the person that you wish to correspond with. Typically an e-mail address will appear in the form of someone@an-internet-service-provider.com. For example, if your name was John Smith your email address could be john_smith@www.sisterlakescable.com.
Internet News
Internet newsgroups are forums for public discussion. It is usually easiest to think of them as a collection of bulletin boards each hosting a different topic of discussion.

SPEED COMPARISON
With CableOp Service high-speed Internet you will quickly learn why it is actually called the World Wide Web as you discover that the world of information is immediately at your fingertips.
Cable Internet access vastly outperforms most other common means of connecting to the Internet and will enable you to experience the best of what the web has to offer at the speeds it is designed to utilize.
Modem speeds are measured in kilobits per second (Kbps). To convert to kilobytes per second (KB/sec.), divide by eight – note the spelling “bits” vs “bytes”. In the table below, each modem speed is shown along with the theoretical time required to download a 1 MB file, assuming the full transfer speed was achieved. Please keep in mind that these speeds are the theoretical possible speeds. Regardless of your Internet Service Provider, overhead and other natural inefficiencies of the Internet (such as web site server lag and general Internet congestion) often reduce actual performance by 5 percent to 20 percent for all users.

What does my MB mean and how long does it take to down load a file?????
