|Pre Sales information:|
Value for money:
(ratings match consensus)
I had 6 meg cable broadband that cost me $45/month and never used the bandwidth!
I ordered AT&T's 768 "DSL Lite w/ term agreement" the day it became available.
(term agreement is 12 months, with a $50 early termination fee)
The $75 DSL modem/router & install kit came 3 days later.
I used the DSL splitter in the self-install kit to separate voice and DSL lines outside at the customer interface, so I don't need to use DSL filters on the phones inside.
I get about 650 down and 100 up.
I plan on keeping this as long as it remains $10/month, which is at least through 12/31/2009.
Price raised to $20 in early 2010 - still only 768KB.
Will probably dump this for cable ($30/month for 6 months) or Clear WiMax ($40/month).
Still using as of summer 2011.
1.5 down for $15/month.
Rock solid reliable, but slow (looks like no one locally can get more than 1.5 down, probably because of U-Verse coming)
Still using as of spring 2012.
They still offer it for $15/month (up to 3MBps down)
My line still only provisions for 1.5, but I'll keep it forever as long as I can get this price (it now looks like U-Verse will NEVER come to this area)
Finally provisioned for 6MBps down, but the cost is $50/month!
Unexpected outage last month of nearly a full week.
Getting ready to switch over to 15MBPs down cable broadband ($35/month).
