    I use bittorent and i heard the FCC forced comcast to remove the bittorent throttling. Is this true? What other options do I have? I know time warner is crap too like that. Any ideas?

    Wow that sucks! You're moving to a place where stealing electronic files be it software or music may become difficult?

    Damn, it sucks so bad to be you!

    I had AT&T Uverse before I moved back home and I loved it. After I told my parents about it and what I could do with it they dumped Timewarner and got it as well.

    Personally I like it over Fios for the TV part. While internet speeds are not as fast it is still massive over kill for what you need but on the TV side Uverse I think it better because less cost than Fios you get a DVR, and the ablity to watch record shows off the DVR on multiple TV.

    Plus I believe Uverse can handle more streams at one time.

    Either way AT&T Uverse gets my vote

    Correct, there's no throttling on Comcast (tho they're fighting it). However, you might run up against their 250GB/month bandwidth cap. Here's where I keep up with all that stuff: http://www.dslreports.com/shownews/103951

    Oh, and don't be evil. Pay your freight when it comes to content.

    appreciate the nice answers. Perhaps some should learn to ask more questions before starting a flame war. Maturity is I guess is lacking these days. A shame.

    Thank you I'll follow that topic. I'm just a true believer in Net Neutrality.

    And unlike a lot, I buy my music and software. That's the difference.

    Thanks GeekLawyer and Rodimus Prime. Appreciate the mature answers.
