    Write articles - get SG Premium Membership !

    At users' requests, we had implemented a tool for users to be able to post articles and user reviews to SpeedGuide.net a few months ago, and we'd like to see more people invoved and taking advantage of it. Publishing your work with us gives you the opportunity to voice your opinion, share your experiences with a large audience and provides great exposure; we serve about 3.5 Million pages monthly to nearly one Million unique users.
    In light of SpeedGuide.net's 5th birthday (we got this domain on 05.05.1999 even though the information was available for about a year prior to that), and to spark some more interest and participation in this program, I'd like to introduce the following limited time incentives for it:

    Any well written short user story, tips and information submited that we decide to publish will grant you one month of Premium membership to the site at no cost to you.

    Any quality article or user review over ~1000 words that we publish will grant you 3 months of Premium membership to the site at no cost to you.

    To get started, you simply have to be registered, and post your work using the form here: http://www.speedguide.net/submit.php


    Notes:
    - SG Premium membership is an optional service that provides users with an advanced security scanner, image hosting on the SG servers, as well as Ad-free browsing. It also provides support for our free programs and the site in general. Premium membership is also available at $5.95 per month here: http://www.speedguide.net/services.php

    - We're looking for quality broadband and networking related articles and hardware reviews, we may not publish all submitted work. If you'd like to discuss your topic with us prior to writing/submitting it, email/PM me with your topic/abstract and any relevant information.

    Any comments, questions and suggestions are welcome.

    Oh my, contemplating already

    I hate to say it but I've been drooling over a SG membership since it came out but can't afford it.

    Maybe this English degree WILL come in handy.

    Great idea Philip

    I'd be interested in doing some reviews or articles. However, I don't have any ideas as of yet. Also the lack of money to buy things to review is quite a problem on its own.

    Is it worth the effort of my documenting the finer points of Big Pond cable in Australia? It is the only ISP left in the world that still uses the 'heartbeat' system and you need special routers and login clients and whatnot.

    They are, I rarely use this term, positively **** in their tech support too. Ring them up and unless you have the modem plugged into one stand alone computer with their inherently flawed client, they will not talk to you at all.

    Indeed, I've rang up a number of times over the years to ask if there was a cable problem because I knew the problem wasn't my end and they weren't interested in talking to me until I pulled apart the home network and used their useless client... fools.

    Anyhow, it's a bit of a niche market, but I've a wealth of knowledge and don't mind sharing if it's considered worthy. Different clients, different OS's (they only support windows), what type of routers are compatible etc. etc. ...

    Sounds interesting, even if it's a proprietary system.

    We'd publish almost anything that's broadband/networking/wireless related and well written.

    Would that include joke stories about Microsoft plotting world domination...?

    I'd leave that to conspiracy theory sites, we'd like to stay technical, except for the user stories section.

    Is there a requirement on the age of the hardware reviewed? i.e, my cisco 806 has been discontinued, but is still available.
    If your browser can't read unicode, you should probably switch!

    Qwijib0, I'm sure there are others that can benefit from such a review as well...
