    If your switching to cable and its a big provider then i would say do it. I have not had dsl in many years but i will never go back to it unless thats all thats offered where i move. Not having to deal with the pppoe headaches lets me sleep at night.

    I am happy with the actual service... the pricing is screwed up and the tech people don't speak very good english... it's dsl and it works quite well when they don't close the port... the cable guys were I live throttle your connection so I not to keen on switching to them... I am looking at the overall price of phone, internet, cell, tv and if it's work switching when you look at the price tag on the bottom of the page. I was also looking at a dry dsl (dsl with no phone service), but the local telco wants to rent the line so I am look at price as well as service... also I was invited to a focus group to discuss my isp... this is the other reason why I posted this thread

    My provider, the Dutch XS4ALL was voted to be the best national provider, with a final score of 8.4 - the best score in the National Provider Test (a survey of the speed, services and customer-friendliness of the 15 largest internet providers in the Netherlands).

    Well for numbers i pay $39 for a 6Mb/512KB pipe. My service has been out 2 times in 4 years and 1 of those times was a planned outage. Over all i am very happy, and have the ability to go up to 12Mb/2Mb pipe if i want to pay for it. But again as i had mentioned i am with the biggest cable provider in Southern California.

    I use UKonline in the UK of course... bit pricey £20 for 1mb due to running over the BT ASDL network rather than their own, if your off their network it's a lot cheaper and faster. However in the UK you seem to get what you pay for, excellent UK based tech support, excellent service. The only pain is that they block ports 80, 8080 and 25..... Where with other "free" or cheaper providers in the UK you seem to get quite a few issues with the service and support and that appears to be once you have finally got connected, you hear a lot horror stories of it taking months!!!!!

    For those of you who responded thanx...

    I attended a "focus" group last night and was quite disappointed with my ISP...

    I was in a group of 8 people who were targeted as being in the top 3% of users whose monthly bandwidth is in the "EXTREME" category. They wanted to see our reaction to imposing a 30 Gig limit... although they said the idea is purely speculative and by no means a business practice the have any plan at this time to impose... B....S...t... F---ing ISP... time to seriously shop the competion....

    again thanks to all those who responeded.
