    I just hope my ATTBI/Comcast cable connection doesn't get bogged down or less reliable as a result...

    Welcome to the cutthroat Telecomm Industry. Soon There will only be a handful of Majors and prices will remain high.



    Gotta love the Telecommunications Act of '96

    Yeah, guess who my provider is?



    *grumblegrumble*



    Been looking at speakeasy.net... simple, plain, decent cost (same as DirecTVDSL)... perfect. I run my own DNS/IMAP/SMTP/HTTP, so all the 'goodies' most people get with an ISP have been pretty useless for me.

    Kickaha- I worked for Speakeasy.net briefly. I'd trust them. Good management. I love their static IP policy. Good luck to you.

    Same here.



    Not sure if speakeasy is available in Utah. am looking qwest, who are the only local land line provider here.



    Anybody care to share any insights into qwest's DSL future before I make a second plunge?

    Heh, Qwest...Avoid them, they're next on the chopping block as far as DSL services is concerned.

    I have Qwest DSL and the speed is very eratic (sp?). I honestly cannot recomend it to anybody.

    Eugene, G4dude,



    my problem is , QWEST is my last mile provider. So, whichever ISP I go with I think QWEST has a hand in it. Or am I wrong?



    Kichaka, did you supply your own modem? I am wondering if we get to keep the modem they supplied when directv shuts down. Would be nice, I've only had the service for a month now.
