They've been down a lot recently. Sometimes hours per day. Is AT&T more reliable? How fast is theirs, and how much do they charge per month?

AT&T speeds are not the greatest. In my area, I think the fastest I could get was 6mbps. My Time Warner is 30mbps and not too expensive. I have also not noticed any outages in my area at all. A lot of people hate Time Warner but I really haven't had any problems. An occasional cable box replacement is the only issue I've ever had

Maybe it varies by neighborhood. But I want to try AT&T, even if it's just 6mbps, to see if it's more reliable than Time Warner is in my neighborhood. I have 50mpbs Time Warner, but it's useless when it's down, and there is no way to predict when it's going down. It's gone down several times today, and has been down most of the day some days. I could keep both services for a few months, to see which works better overall, then cancel the other one.

I wonder if there is a way I could connect both to my computer, and have some software constantly testing both of them and keeping a log of when they're down, so I could compare how often it happens to each of them, to see which is most reliable over the long run.

You're correct there. However it's not planned to arrive until 2017 so for the temporary time being, Time Warner or AT&T are really the only options
