I have had Cox as my internet provider 11 months now Roanoke va city. where I live its the only choice but been so good! as a Verizon DSL person for several yrs at two different locations (Salem, Va and Pound, Va in 'far' southwest Va) I will prob never go back to DSL. I am in the Preferred pack since I really don't need lots of speed for my needs but still beats the advertised speeds I get 15-20+ down and 1 Up most of the time. And their TV service great too Cox recently change the on screen guide made a huge difference especially how On Demand channel changes function used to take a long time to process. ur speed post looks tempting for me but what I have is adequate.
