    should i sacrifice my interweb?

    heres the deal.... i want to get a cellphone, right now i cant afford a cellhpone, but i currently have comcast interweb.

    comcast is like $60 a month for everything, and i get the following speeds:

    Last Result:
    Download Speed: 8540 kbps (1067.5 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed: 351 kbps (43.9 KB/sec transfer rate)

    Or, i can pay $50 for cellphone service, and pay $14 a month for the following:

    Up to 768 Kbps/128 Kbps

    do you guys think i should do it?

    i HATE waiting for downloads, and im going over 8 times faster than what i would be, BUT i have my own car now, i will be going away and stuff, and i will need it for communication (i mean i cant pull over and use the turnpike's callbox's if i want to ask a friend if they want to do something)

    so what do you guys think?

    Agreed. You can't beat a prepaid cell phone. I don't call nobody, and nobody calls me.

    get pre paid, buy minutes online or at the store. Just dont use it for day to day conversations because its not worth it. Use it for important things only.
