|Pre Sales information:|
Value for money:
(ratings match consensus)
Switched from Verizon direct to DSLExtreme because of faster speeds offered. Chose to keep my modem (versus getting one for free on lease)
I woke up in the morning on activation day, and had no internet. I knew that I had to login to the modem and switch to PPoE/enter DSLExtreme credentials. Was up in a few minutes.
I do have to say, $44.95 for 7Mbps is still kind of pricey. Wish they would give some sort of 12 month incentive.
I posted the following here: »DSLExtreme -- still rocking it..
Just want to give props to Nick and DSLExtreme for making my switch flawless.
DO you know what a pain in the ass it is to work with Verizon DSL customer service?
Ask for fastpath? Most reps have no clue what you are talking about, or lie and say that you cannot get it.
Anyways, over the months I have been pre-qual'ing on DSLExtreme. They stated I could only get 3Mbps, which is what I was subscribed to with Verizon direct.
My CO is FULL here. You can not sign up for new DSL service at all. Everybody is capped at 3Mbps.
Finally, a couple weeks ago, 7Mbps was available through DSLExtreme. I thought -- no way! Verizon direct would not let me upgrade, so I contacted Nick to see if this was a legit thing/if there might be capacity.
Fast forward a few hours, and I pulled the trigger. 4 days later I woke up, and had 7Mbps service.
Asked Nick over the weekend if I could get swapped to Fastpath (lower latency is always nice).
The request was granted, and went from 40-50ms to 10ms (downtown LA).
Anyways, just want to say kudos/thanks DSLExtreme (Nick) for taking care of my order.
