- "Slightly more expensive, sensitive to thunderstorms."
- "No service technicians needed, so I'm very satisfied."

Value for money:
(ratings above consensus)
I had AT&T DSL until they decided to discard me as a customer (cut me off with about 2 weeks notice), tried to connect with their replacment (U-verse) - and it never connected once. Technician came out at a time/date that we explicitly told them we were not going to be home. Overall, experience was bad enough I just told them to take the modem back and cancel our U-verse service as well!
So far this year I have had three outages (one for about a day, the other two for well under an hour) - not bad for something that depends on signals transmitted over the air. Well it has been a year and a half - still with Clear, the rest of the review is still accurate, too. In fact, in the last 6 months, only one more 1 hour outage. Pre-sales may be better or worse, I don't know, but I doubt the install is anything but perfect, still. Service and value still beat any other alternative I have....
Occasionally I get 300 kbit down/300 kbit up (probably just short of losing the connection), And pretty reliably at 6 AM I get 6000-7000 kbit down/1000-1200 kbit up. That's actually better than my DSL connection ever did. Normally I get more like 3000 down and 900 up. Still quite acceptable.
Only slightly more expensive that the $40 AT&T charged for the 6000/768 that I never got, so I'm very satisfied!
AND I'VE NEVER HAD TO HAVE A TECHNICIAN OUT....
