Bad "DSL is not as fast as cable"
Overall "If your choices are Satellite or DSL, DSL wins!"

Value for money:
(ratings match consensus)
Finally got it in the area after almost 9 years of promises.
Definitely better than Wildblue 500kbs service.
There are some coordination issues where everyone I called said yep its all hooked up but when the tech went to the NOC he found out it was not hooked up yet.
Price is decent.
Provided modem is a bit weird... may decide to ditch it early and get a better one form Netgear etc.
Update: After getting 3.2mbps for 6 months I started having dropped connections and other issues. Tech who came out just dropped my speed to 1700kpbs and said that was all the line was good for. So far frontier has given a deaf ear to the idea that it was running 100% stable at 3mbps for 6-9 months and that there is an issue with the line. I might switch to casair instead to get the performance I'm supposed to get.
