You can never know for sure because many factors can affect the quality of service delivered. But you can get a good idea of what kind of service you can expect. Do some research before you move in.

1. Go to » and do a reverse lookup for the street you're thinking of moving to. You'll get a few names and phone numbers of people who live on that street.

2. Go to the availability checker on IGS's website and see what the results are for some of those phone numbers.
