Re: How do you...

Just curious how we all get online.

Feel free to post opinions about your carriers and costs.
That way we can all compare.

I personally had At&t broadband which is now Comcast.
Cost is $41.99 mo, plus $3.00 mo modem rental.
All-in-all, my service has been pretty consistant, and speeds usually avg. 750-900kbs.
They Advertise 1.5mbs.
Although the first 6mo it was like 3-6mbs!! No lie, even the tech almost crapped when he tested it.

This is in Richmond, VA

Re: How do you...

Verizon DSL in Mass, dl around 1.4Mbs, I pay 24.99/mo and modem was free. Pretty good deal since comcast cable in my area is 45/mo and isn't any faster. How can they compete??

Re: How do you...

My SBC DSL came in at 1.2 megabits/sec. *To download a 1MB file, 7.2 seconds. *I can't complain *

Ran my test through bandwidthplace.com
