Good "Everything"
Bad "Nothing"
Overall "50 MBPS service rock solid and no nags"

Absolutely fabulous service.
Listed price includes VOIP service, excluding the reasonable telephone usage charges.

FWIW, in my case it is a fiber connection to an apartment building, VDSL from the fiber terminal in the building to the apartment. In spite of the title, most OCN isn't DSL.

·Verizon FiOS
So far the connection has been quite stable. I pretty reliably get 70-80 down and 50-60 megabits up on speedtest.net yokohama server:

Its good for gaming as I ping 10ms to several game servers. Doing multiple streams I have done about 90/90 on the connection.

I get quite good latency to my server in the U.S.:

Also very good speeds. I can typically get download speeds between 3-5 megabytes/sec (24-40 megabits) and upload speeds at 5-10 megabytes/sec (40-80 megabits) to my server.

I would say the only real downside to the connection is the fact it uses PPPoE. The 1.7 Ghz celeron box I am using can barely keep up with 100/100 PPPoE when I thought it would be enough. Apparently PPPoE uses a lot more CPU than I thought. When downloading at 90 megabits pppoe will use 93% CPU usage. For some reason it uses a lot less when uploading.

All in all the connection has been good. I might go KDDI hikaru one (1g/1g) especially as I have heard they have no limits but considering the speeds and latency I get to the U.S. I am reluctant to switch.
