We signed up for Earthlink DSL in 2000, when 3.5Mbps was a really high speed. Due to the quality of the telephone lines we only get 2.5Mbps but it's good enough for our daily uses.
The modem was a breeze to install, and over the years I received an update from an Arescom 800 to the ZyXEL P660R-ELNK Router for ADSL I currently use.
Originally we had signed up for Netcom, and through them I was given six accounts each with 10MB of personal web space. As Netcom was absorbed by Mindspring and ultimately Earthlink, I was allowed to keep the web space and my established pages. Other services I have looked into over the years don't offer the hosting space for the price.
My only complaint is the occasional drop in speed, sometimes to 367kbps. I dread contacting support, especially when the problem is in their line, because they have me reset the modem over and over. I have the script memorized, in fact.
But when it works, it works great for the price.
