    U-Verse 10mb service; I pretty much get this around the clock. I'm pretty happy with it; they expressly say there are no bandwidth usage limits at all, you can download as much as you want.

    I thought it was decent until I see most of the speeds posted here, lol.

    not quite as awesome as their "fair access policy"!!! :(


    You're better off tethering a cellphone to the computer. Same speed, same bandwidth caps, and at a much lower cost.

    Hey man, my wife has an AT&T broadband card in her Dell Mini9 laptop, and when she's in a G3 area that thing gets close to 2mb down, 1.5mb up. Pretty impressive for mobile broadband. If you're in a G3 area you might consider a broadband card over satellite.

    Speed drops quite a bit when in an EDGE area though.

    Yeah, we're out in a rural area and I only get Edge out here :( Not to mention its for a small network of 4 computers, that would get pretty expensive for cards and accounts for all of them :eek2: We've done pretty well so far with WildBlue, not too much music or movie downloading gets done here :) And we've never hit the FAP limit (knock on wood) but when you're used to speeds like 20mb at home, its like going from a corvette to a prius :lol:

    It's amazing what a difference a little time will make. Cox must have increased their speeds since the last time I ran this test.

    well my municipal wireless broadband service bit the dust during the storms we had earlier this week.

    lighting struck about 100yds from my microwave antenna, and it popped the modem. fortunately, the computer was unscathed.

    so i just signed up online for 12mbps DSL (fastest they listed). hopefully next week i'll be showing a new speed here, much faster than the 2xxkpbs i posted earlier.

    it said they will have to call me monday to verify that my desired speed is available in my area. lets hope so!

    i'm borrowing a neighbor's (relative) wireless connection for now.

    We should include what we pay our ISP for these speeds.

    I'm about $50 for 20 up/20 down.

    No need for seperate cards and accounts, you can get a router for the broadband modem.
