Fios is the shizz. I have had britehouse(time warner) before and the picture quality for the tv is uncompromised. Even the non HD telecast from FIos owns Timewarner. The internet services rocks too. Of course, if it isnt available, then it is a mute point, and Timewarner is the next closest thing.

call your ISP. 1.5Meg should get LEAST 1.1megs. Call them if you consistently don't get above 900.

Next time I do it at work I'll post mine. 35m down and 15m up. =)

I've got the 3/768 from Verizon. It's nice except for the midday disconnects...

and when I upload at max, it totally slows my downloads.

I would if I could, not available here.

best i can get here is 768Kbp DSL or 9Mbps Cable, I've had 1.5MBps DSL and even 3MBps cable is much better.

yeah, but I pay like 30.00 for the 15/2, they want like 40 something for the 20/5(new rates). I dont need that kind of bandwidth. Even with the VOIP phone I have in the home office does just fine on the 15/2.

Ihate time warner. Their techs are idiots that do nothing but read scripts even after you tell them that you have already run all "their" test and want to speak to level II (aka) in the USA support.

And they can never get anyone out for days
