My Other Reviews

In the earliest days of Century's DSL, it was a stinking nightmare. DIY install was virtually impossible, since you couldn't get it to sync without a tech dispatch.

I worked for a company that sold it.

Today, it's much better. most installs go smoothly, and speeds are as stated.

Location is a big deal... 10/.75 is their top speed around here... 6/.5 3/.5 and 1.5/.25 are the others. It's not that fast.

They've been dropping prices lately and guaranteeing no increases for 5 years... that's nice, but you're already behind the speed curve. If the 1.5 speed is ok for you, it's 20$ a month. If you really need speed, go somewhere else.

There's No Other Option.

It's easy to say go somewhere else but for most of us there is no other option. I could never get anything at my house that worked except dialup until they put in DSL. I'm able to get 20mb now and that's plenty fast. In a lot of other places they can still only get up to 1.5mb though.

Re: There's No Other Option.

I follow you. I sat on 1.5m DSL for a time myself. Hopefully the internet market will be come competitive in your region.
