Value for money:
02/28/2012 Update - Everything has been going very smoothly. I had some issues with a wireless router that caused my speeds to fall. After diagnosing that and replacing the router, the wireless speeds are incredible. I have old hardware to begin with and need to upgrade the main PC this Spring.
Bundled with the triple play option, so exact costs for the internet connection are not known to me without doing some digging. I am not a big downloader, but when I do I don't really have any complaints. I am not paying for any super high speeds though.
07/12/2005 Update - Nothing new to report. The service has been flawless for several months now. I think it is faster now than when I started with @Home. I am hoping I am not jinxing myself, but I don't have any complaints at the moment.
Having been an original @home client, I have gone through a lot of highs and lows with this service. The transition period was horrible as I had to have my modem replaced because it was not compatible with the ATT Broadband service. After that 3 week period, things have been okay. Every so often the service might go down for a few hours or so. The tech support help that I have needed has been decent once I get past the Level one guys. But, it has usually resulted in a service call.
Of course, the speed was better during the @home period, but considering the alternatives available to me, its still okay. Of course, I am not a power user downloading a lot of stuff or playing a lot of online games. And lately, my tested speeds have exceeded the 1500 download barrier for some reason.
All in all, its been an okay service. Not as great as the original @home service but better than some of the alternatives I have checked into. I just hope the transition to Comcast and/or any future cost increases won't have any impact on my decision to stay with the service.
