Dumped my Verizon DSL... Thu, 03/7/13 3:28 PM (permalink)
Back when I got it, 3Mbps was okay enough. My area was slow getting ANY high speed internet. I'd been paying through the nose for a dedicated line and 512kbps (.5Mbps) SDSL, and when Verizon's ADSL offered me 3M down and .768 up I jumped on it, figuring to switch to FIOS when it became available.
And now, FIOS will never become available. Cable has won. And today I made a deal with the devil, Service Electric CATV, paying an extra $10/mo to get high speed internet without cable TV. I'm keeping my DirecTV, the only service provider that's never given me any trouble.
Speedtest shows 15.237Mbps down and 1.25 up. No more "retrieving" while streaming Netfix, no more pausing and buffering while watching YouTube. Damn it feels good to be a gangsta.
