Value for money:
Moved to Evanston, WY in Aug 2009... Had Windjammer, Quest, and NGL Connection (satellite internet) as options and went with Windjammer. Ordered the Turbo internet (10MB down, 1.5MB up) at special of 29.95 for the first year, 39.95 thereafter. They had just switched from Adelphia and were in the process of switching server equipment so I wasn't able to get more than 5MB down for the first 2 months or so. Once the transition was complete and ever since, I have had rock solid speeds of 9-10MB throughout. The only drawback is they laid off all but three techs in the area, so if something does go haywire, it takes a bit for it to get fixed... but all in all, it's a great service for the money. The cable service on the other hand is an absolute joke and they know it, but I recommend their internet to ANYONE who lives within their serviceable system in Evanston (even the ones I install DirecTV in!)
EDIT: 10/2012 So, Windjammer was bought out by Allwest Communications, the local fiber company. They did a few upgrades at the head end, and stated they will be updating the cable plant, since only half the city has Fiber ran (they ran out of money on the initial build out). We upgraded to the 20MB service for $60 a month and we see around 16-17MB on average. All in all, it's been pretty painless since the transition, but we will see if they can maintain...
