    This is a poll to see which company people use as their ISP. I only listed the ISPs I am aware of in the U.S., so if your ISP Is not listed, do not vote and just post which one you use.

    Comcast, as it's the only game in town with the bandwidth I need as I office from home.

    As an afterthought I'm attaching a speedtest.net result.

    Verizon Fios. Reliable, good up/down speeds. I get 43 down, 33 up. Cost: $30/month.

    Part of a TV, home phone, internet bundle.

    AT&T.

    They're not that bad, but the customer support is awful.

    Wow, that's a lot of bandwidth! I get 20 down and 4up with Comcast. I wish Comcast would do some upstream channel bonding so we can see those upload speeds.

    Cox Business cable connection with 50 down/5 up, and a fixed /28 IP block. Expensive, but worth it.

    Have you seen the Post Your Connection Speed thread? There are a few people with 100+ download and one (that I saw) that had 500+ download. :eek:

    Wow, they must be on a dedicated Ethernet connection or something.

    I'm pretty sure they're a college student. Colleges/Universities are experimenting with a new Internet connection that has ridiculous speeds, if my neighbor was right.

    It could be a college, or it could just be a business with a SONET or GigE/10GigE connection. Fixed circuits come in many different speeds, and if your business or university has the cash, getting a 10Gig (or OC192) connection isn't out of the question. It just isn't cheap.

    Forty Gig/OC768 and 100Gig connections will be more numerous as time goes on as well.

    I suppose that is possible, but they're a college student (or at least at a college). Hence University of Texas.

    I assume they are using something along these lines (I believe it goes up to 10GBPS):

    Comcast. The options are comcast/qwest (though this is not qwest anymore). We always joked that Comcast should run a marketting campaign here saying


    "Comcast. At least we're not qwest."

    Right. Colleges rarely pay for their own bandwidth, which is why they can "afford" to have reasonably large pipes run to them. I wouldn't be too surprised if it was a GigE or 10GigE circuit.
