My Other Reviews

Had an issue where latency jumped from avg 8ms to over 40ms. Seems the line was switched
to interleaved from fast. IM'ed George, who put call to ATT, and a couple days later it was fixed. Overall, DSLX was, and is, a good ISP, for me.
In spite of a few bumps along the way.

Update 04/27/13; upgraded to the Fusion service in January. Enjoying decent speed (~7Mb) and better phone package for less than separate. Hopefully this will be a lasting option and not go the way of the dodo.

I am a bit over 1/2 mile from my CO as the crow flies. However, the wires aren't crows and I am told my distance is about 1-1/2 miles. YMMV

Update 08/27/13; so far so good. Both DSL and phone service working well and I am enjoying the savings over having to deal with AT&T. For me, Fusion has been a win, so far.

Update 8/28/14; download speed dropped from average 6.1Mbs to 5.6Mbs. Investigated with DSLX but no reason or solution. I guess somewhere
a squirrel chewed a wire or a bird pooped on a connection. Sigh.
