Hello everyone!

We are in the process of moving to SA and were wanting to research Internet providers for the area.. We have Clearwire, where we live now. Unfortunately they are not in SA. Does anyone have any suggestions for providers? Thanks for any insight!

We have been happy with Road Runner....there are a few bumps once in a while but we like it. Depending on where you will be living there may be other options. We are outside 1604, north 281 and we could only choose between Time Warner-Road Runner or GVTC.

AT&T DSL is available here - they offer several different plans, but there is a "hidden" plan for $10 month that's a pretty good deal. FastAccess DSL Term Agreement Plans Available

I would assume it would depend on where you are looking to live. Again....out here in North San Antonio County, outside city limits, in our particular area we can only get Time Warner or GVTC. GVTC laid all the lines years ago and own the rights therefore AT&T or others cannot provide service here.

Clearwire is in the process of building San Antonio out right now.

Roadrunner- when it works it is great. Howver if you into problems, good luck getting them resolved. But maybe I just had a bad experience with them

ATT- DSL and their new Uverse service. DSL is not as fast as road runner, but it cost less. If you live in a new house, you might have fiber to the prem.


Grandecom - Limited availibilty but good service.

GVTC - they are going all fiber, so their service should be good.


I cant believe clearwire is coming to town. I just dont see how a wireless broadband is going to compete here.

Default ?

Okay.. so we are in Wichita Falls now and there are a ton of options. I'm guessing the larger the population the greater the difficulty to cover the area.

Has anyone heard of Xanadoo?
Any idea when Clearwire would be coming?? I really love them! They have had excellent customer service and pretty reliable service.

Thanks everyone! I really appreciate your help!!

There's also the politics of local monopolies granted by local and state governments adding to the difficulty of alternatives coming in, especially on the cable side of things.
