No problems since install in November. Up time as good or better than Qest DSL. Speed consistently high. Price is comparable to Qwest's lowered prices. All in all, extremely satisfied.

Now at 4000/384 with excellent connection. Uptime is over 99%. Only two short interruption since installation and those were fixed within 4 hours.

I went for the High Priced Spread and have 8000/768. I regularly get those speeds and have no complaints. THere were DNS Issues in the past, but I have alternatives ready to use so it is not an issue. There hads been no down time here since the last report.

Still a bit pricey, but so is their cable (I ahve two HDTV's both on the cable). Hopefully as fiber makes it way to homes, the competition will force the prices down a little.

Still with Comcast and the service is the same as in October 2005. Excellent speed, and reliability.

Now on 8mb with Powerboost. Service has been excellent since the last review with no interruptions. Well worth the money. ($52.95/mo)

No changes since the May update. Only one outage since then and that was for less than 2 hours. No recent DNS issues. There were a few early in the year but none since.

Went to a Triple Play package to get the phone and DVR. As a part of the package I am now on a 16/2 connection. Service is excellent with very few interrupts or slowdowns.

Still on triple play. Comcast has increased speeds since last review and I currently get 50/10. Extremely few interruptions. Total time down in last 5 years is less than 6 hours.

Now on an Arris TG862G Docsis 3.0 emta/modem/router. No issues for me with this unit and wireless is excellent anywhere in my apartment. No need to go to bridge mode at this time.
