Here in Phoenix, Qwest has changed over most of the city to it's fiber system, I've got 12mbps service for $43 a month, 20mbps runs about $55 a month or so.

I've got "VOD" through D*, a lot of it's content is HD but it's not true instant. Stuff d/l's to your DVR...but my progress bar turns green pretty quickly and I can start watching without bumping against the buffer.

Speed tests with the HD DVR indicates it's maxing out at about 6mbps (D*'s system limits from what I've been told).

Never had any problems streaming Netflix (HD and regular) to my PS3 (which is wired, via AC connect modules) or my newer BR player which is linked with my wifi (g).

Speed tests on the PS3 indicate its running 10+mbps, which is pretty much the actual limits of my 12mbps service.

The time it takes to download HD movies, even with many of the broadband connections people have.....can be daunting.

Some people do have very fast ISP connections and downloads speeds, but few have enough to make regular HD downloading a worthwhile experience.
