Overall "Needs to be DOCSIS 3.0 but worlds better than AT&T"

Value for money:
(ratings match consensus)
I had AT&T since 2002 but finally gave up on them after catching them throttling my service from 6 mb service to 3 mb then below 1 mb. Every time I came home from my job being out of state I would have to call them about slow service because of the speed issues and then my 6 mb service started going below 1 meg they then sent out a service tech and he said it was because of the main office profile was changed and they were restricting the service from there. He made some phone calls and told them they should have caught that before he came on the service call and told they the dslam box was on my property, and told me I had fiber to that hub, and not to put me on a noise profile. Since AT&T took over Bellsouth my pings had gone from 90 ms to 42 ms then after AT&T the pings were 130+ ms. That was the last straw and I ordered CableOne 10/1 mb plan and they had only one issue that affected the whole network but thats been fixed months ago. DSL is looking like dead tech and AT&T will never invest in Fiber to the home.
P.S. never complain to AT&T management like this guy did in one polite e-mail after asking for a early upgrade. »www.engadget.com/2010/06/02/atan···a-cease/

I now have the 50mb service everything looks good less than 24 hrs local office had the new speed activated for me. CableOne insisted that I sign a contract for the 50mb service for 1 year at $45 after one year price will go back to $53
