Value for money:
I switched to SkyNet360 over 12 months ago so my contract is over. I used to be on a 1.2/256 DSL from AT&T. I was pissed by the pings > 500ms and constant drops. I was paying $32/mo for crap.
Switched to local WISP after having it at work for a while. I love it. Always on, you just need to have a UPS on it so it will stay on during a power failure. Quick service and response via email.
02/19/12 - I used to be 10/1, but they did a change and now our upload sometimes goes above 2. Not really that useful except when syncing my Dropbox account.
09/14/12 - Still going strong at 10/3. Pings in the 10-20ms. Just got news that the company is going to start upgrading equipment by the end of the year so we can get 90meg downloads. Not sure if this involves a cost increase and how much.
09/02/13 - Almost a year later and still the same. We are still waiting on the upgrades but they are getting there. They now own their own address space so no sharing with Level 3 anymore. They are starting to put up more antennas and access points in the local area. This will make it better and faster for all.
07/07/14 - The provider has upgraded most of its access points to allow speeds up to 100 meg. I have already upgraded my work connections and I am seeing (16-20) down and 3-5 uploads. I am scheduled to get my residence done soon. Oh, they have put service on the Channel 6 tower which expands their area.
