Value for money:
(ratings match consensus)
Speed ordered is 30MBs down. But it is all over the place... highest was 42 and lowest was 2 MBs..
Got triple play replacing ATT landline and DSL. Total cost with TV and phone including taxes is $164/month. Thats a $15/month savings with faster speed.
The phone and TV are fine but Internet is not all that stable yet.
Update: The Interent stability is fixed and the speed is in the low 40'sMps. I'm happy.
Oh, I got their free cloud storage service. 10 TB and no cost because we went triple play. I like that service... a lot!
Update 4/1/13: Ever since install the night time speed has been less than the 30 MBs (mostly about 10-15-MBs) but the last month I see drastic speed cuts at night. Most nights it drops to 2 MBs and sometimes down to 1.5MBs. I didn't complain before because the speed was at least 50% faster than my old DSL. But these new low speeds are a drag and its time to start squeaking like an ungreased wheel,
Oh, the unlimited online backup is history for new subscribers now... but it was very slow for uploads anyway.
10TB? How can one have 10TB cloud storage? the bandwidth cap is 250GB a month....
Re: 10TB? You know they don't seem to be enforcing it. One rep said they won't on this. I don't know but its way beyond my needs anyway. I have all my music and pictures backed up there and my wife's documents. Total about about 40 gigs so far. Its not an issue for me as I won't exceed 250 gigs a month anyway.
Last night I backed up my Garmin GPS at about 6 gigs. It took about 5 hrs since upload is much slower( 4Mps). So up loading 10 TB would be a time problem. LOL
It so far is a nice surprise that I didn't expect much from. Their program seems to work well and it even has the storage cloud acting like a system drive so you can drag and drop files into it and it automatically uploads it. Plus they have an automatic backup program that works much like windows automatic backup.
It is serving as my redundant off site backup that I have been looking for. And with Triple play it free to boot.
Here's how it shows in the Windows Explorer window:
