I get 1.5 and I have a residential line - for my home based business.

With that said, Qwest has a 7Mbps offering through MSN at $37 a month. I am not switching to a higher speed until I have to move. I like my service and one of those people that says "if it aint broke..."

I didn't specifically look into that, but I'm sure you can ask Qwest.

Thank you CoFlower and ahz!

It actually sounds better than what I have now. I have problems logging on and getting logged off weekly with my current DSL service out here.

In any case, I'm just happy to hear that there is more than AOL out there and that I don't have to climb a telephone poll to make a call. ;-)

Hey, Bud. I have DragonFly. It's a wireless signal and they don't require any contract. You can get up to like 8.0 Mb per sec, I think. It's pretty cheap, too. I pay $29/mo. My neighbor has it too.

Hope that helps.

Wouldn't work easily in my neighborhood. Sure you can break some of the encryption, but that shows willful action where open access points provide plausible deniability for the most part.

Yeah, wide open ones are the best for sure. But 80% of the "secured" ones use WEP, and with aircrack I can be in in less than 5 minutes.

FYI Everyone, make sure you secure your wireless devices with WPA with a strong key. If the key is good, it's next to impossible to break for most people.

I would consider switching to Qwest MSN DSL 1.5Mbps for home, but I really hate the thought MSN. I wish Qwest sold residential 1.5Mbps DSL without MSN for the same price.
Well, DragonFly is $29/mo for 2.0 Mb up/800K down. And no contracts, equipment to buy, or "hidden" fees.
