    I have had Cox cable service ever since I hit the Sunshine State, but I had Yahoo/SBC DSL before that. I found both services excellent. :) Originally the bundling issue upset me... In Detroit I had a landline phone just to get DSL. But now I have a DVR and cable is well worth it. ;)

    Are you thinking about getting both Fios TV and internet? It seems nice, albeit somewhat pricey compared to what I have now for cable tv / internet...

    Another Comcast user here...I've been very happy with the internet sertvice, but my second one-year promotional deal just ran out and they're wanting to charge me $128/month for internet and digital cable (with Silver package and DVR). I'll have to see what they can do for me or I may be exploring alternatives.

    I'm currently getting ripped the **** off by Comcast. :mad:

    The service is excellent - customer service, technician services, and the internet service itself - it's just that I'm not made of money...

    Comcast and Time Warner each bought pieces of Adelphia. (They swapped a few markets as well.)

    $128 per month! Wow!

    Here I can get a great cable package and Internet for about $75 per month. Internet only is about $50 for VDSL (100Mbps).

    Instead I opted for regular Internet for about $25 per month (45Mbps ADSL).

    Actually, it may be a bit cheaper than that depending on the exchange rate.

    Bellsouth here. Unfortunately it's more expensive than I'd like because we had to pay for a phone line as well (that we NEVER use.. we both have cells), but they're the only company that offers highspeed internet in this area. :mad:

    BellSouth DSL in use here. I've got the "FastAccess DSL Xtreme" package for $37.95, which is 3 Mbps down/384 Kbps up.

    BellSouth could be better but they have once automatically lowered the price and they did call me to upgrade me after prices fell $10.00 per month.

    I have earthlink.net cable basic. I love it and it appears to be very snappy comparing to my parent's cox high speed premier.

    for the first 6 months im mapying $29.95 then after that its like 45.95 i think.

    Same here. Downloads and uploads are kind of slow, but it's better than dial up. I'm thinking about upgrading to the 3 Mbps/768 Kbps plan, since it's only $30.

    Cable at 1.5mbs but most times it runs slower since most of the sites I view are foreign.
