Is ATHM really that bad. Maybe I should re-eval my purchase of their stock!

I think earnings look good. Beat by 1 cent even. Can't imagine this is anything other than good news.

ATHM's modem working at about 500 bps now - what speed (sarcasm) - maybe if the stock price were lower the company would work a bit harder at providing a system that delivers the hi-speed access they purport the cable modem to have (up to 100 x faster than phone line - phooey - cable modem slower than phine line dial-in)

Don't forget... it's only as fast as the device sending you the data.
Not all sites transmit as fast as your modem can receive.
Internet traffic also slows at busy times.

thx, nurk. this is a case where several sites i'm trying to access are slow - so it's very likely the modem. Also, the caching of the server at the cable modem hub might be busy since even for pages already recent;y loaded it's taking a while to do re-loads

finally cable modems are true shared bandwidth, so maybe more and more people are using it and/or signed up for the service and will be using it

When you say 500 BPS- Do you mean as vs 56,000 BPS on a standard dial in modem???

If so - I am shocked - Is it bad enough to make you switch or does it just come and go and is just an annoyance.
sorry to be off the topic..

comes and goes - evening can be worse. Bad thng about cable modem is you must be in the place where the cable is located eg. at home (a good name they chose).

Dial-in ISP (and ADSL if it's available in the area from which you're calling) allows you to call from anywhere.

In Canada, you will have better cable modem performance, all other thigs being equal, b/c fewer persons on the "highway"

I know that since Videotron lowered their rate to 29$ a month, the service is getting slower and slower , but never as slower as a DUN connection.

What's your take on these earnings? The stock held up but didn't JUMP up. I don't know what to make of this!

"Earnings" show progress, but market weak, that's part of why no major jump.
