Too slow in Texas I live in central/east Texas and have no realistic choice other than Windstream. They used to have a huge line quality problem since everything is so spread out around here. But they have fixed all those issues and now I can see that I have a flawless connection (SNR 18, Atten 18; and the Sagemcom 1704 actually says a full 12M to the CO), but after about 6PM to around 11PM it is nearly unusable. They simply oversubscribed their 12M service for the trunk they have going out of here.
There was a brief window after I worked with the local techs to sort out my issues that I was flying on the 12M speed, but it has slowly gotten more & more congested. Before the 12M was available, I actually got great service on the 6M.
