    Everybody has to realize that some phonelines in this world can be up to 100 years old or just generally crappy, phones have been around longer than that. That would be why sega of japan only used 33k modems in their dreamcasts and over here we got 56k modems. In my city, we never got cable until the 70's. I have never had a problem with the actual cable lines but have had plenty of modem/dsl problems over the years, going back to the mid 80's with my old 800baud. If the phone lines are underground the corrosion/crackle problem is less likely. And underground lines tend to be less than 15 years old. In the house I live in now, dsl/dialup is out of the question. Even my dreamcast has problems with the crappy phone lines from 1930. When the cable company installed my internet, they put in all new cables right from the pole. The phone company "claimed to enhance the line" lol. These wires are just old and gross. Thats why I use cell phones even when at home.
