Not to be a jerk but what TC considers high speed is the same speed i had in 1999. Right now I'm rocking 100 down/ 75 up for 39.99 a month.

After having dial-up ANYTHING is high speed. We had nothing but dial-up the whole time we had a computer when I grew up (didn't get internet until '98). When I went to college and got my own computer I was amazed at the campus network giving me 100 kilobyte per second download speeds, and that's nothing now.

Lol where do you live that you can get that price for that speed...almost certainly not in the USA...Comcast is one of the biggest providers here and just to get my 20/25 Megabit download speed I have to pay at least $59.99 a month I believe.

Man your lucky then because OO is horrible ISP in NJ. It made me switch over to Verizon due to there over selling of Nodes and cause lag spike up to 1000+ ms. I think CT is not that populated that's why you had good service.

How are you enjoying Verizon's data caps and overage fees, TC?

I wish I could get official, government-declared "broadband" (4Mbps), but, alas, I am stuck with unreliable 1.5Mbps DSL... probably forever.
