How crap? What speeds do you get? Netflix say 0.5Mbps is the minimum with a faster connection getting you a better picture. It might be worth trying the free trial anyway.
[QUOTE 3533472, member: 9609"]at this moment 1.88 mps (can be better in the middle of the night, it dies from 6pm to 9pm) - it will stream radio but video is very frustrating, it would undoubtedly wait until a good point then pause itself for 5 mimutes.[/QUOTE]
I get a slow down in the early evening until around 9pm or 10pm due to the number of people online at those times. It might still be worth trying Netflix. They've been flawless for me on connections down to 2Mbps with no buffering. The quality wasn't great but it was watchable.
