I'm about to scream. I've been with Suddenlink Cable in Houston for 4 years. At the beginning of last year had a period with off and on Internet problems for six months. Finally figured out those problems were with a phone modem that they provided and it took them months to figure it out. Then I went for 6 months no issues. Now in the last two weeks I've had intermittent internet with 2 visits and a 3rd scheduled for Sunday (this weekend). They keep doing the same thing, futzing with checking signals, signals ok. They've swapped the Modem, problem went away for 3 days and now its back. Internet has dropped 4 times today. Here is the real question. Anyone using Dish Network or Direct TV plus DSL and happy with it? I have friends who use Dish and are happy with it, and others who have had it and dumped it. I'm paying too much for this kind of aggravation. Besides going cold turkey, what competing services should I consider? What do you think?
