Good "I have used this DSL provider for 8 plus years mostly with no problems."
- Location: Irving,Dallas,TX
- Cost: $65 per month
- Install: about 5 days
Bad "My particular location Verizon owns the phone lines therefore phone service is necessary to have DSL"
Overall "For the most part, I am happy but connection getting slower it would appear."

Value for money:
I had a bad experience with Verizon and since they own the phone lines here they have been bugging me to try and get their FIOS but when I fired them as a cell phone provider I vowed to never use their services again. I am pretty hard headed as well. Initially when I had ATT installed here it was SBC. It has been so long ago that I don't remember exactly how long it took to hook it up. I have had a Speedstream 5100 modem for about 8 years until tonite when one of their techs suggested that I purchase a newer modem due to the connection problems that I have been having. They are supposed to send someone out to check phone lines tomorrow. I have got it working tonight unless I switch over to use Firefox browser and then it crawls. Their line test today showed an extreme amount of line errors. It would really bite if I have to wait until 3am to get a good connection. Anyway, I got to get to get to sleep. I have considered switching to cable modem but do not want a slower connection or one that is affected by the weather. I tried Clear modem this past weekend and could not not get enough of a signal to even get started.
