Does anyone have any experience streaming video (Netflix, Hulu) with USI? What has the quality been like? We've had Comcast for a long time but looking to save a few bucks if the streaming quality is OK.

USI is great if you have a direct line of sight to one of their nodes from a window in you place. If you do, the speeds are pretty much as advertised.

If you don't have a direct line of sight, the quality of the connection goes downhill pretty quickly.

3 megs of bandwidth is enough to stream without issue and 6 is more than enough for HD quality.
