Non-bundled High Speed Cable
Amount: $66.75
Posted by: Rob in CS in College Station, TX.Posted: June 22nd, 2010 06:06AM
Provider: SuddenlinkType of Connection: Cable
Speed: 10Mb/756Kb
I initially was paying $45 per month. In the middle of the monthly basis, the charges of the service jumped to $66.75 per month. They did increase me from 6Mb/512Kb to the 10Mb/756Kb, but I wasn't really asked if I wanted the upgrade. Since there are 3 gamers in the apartment, it seems to be okay until someone decides to download something...

Provider: ComcastType of Connection: high-speed cable
Speed: 6.0 mbps
$65 per month if you don't get a digital cable or phone package (neither of which I need). Price includes modem rental. The first 6 months is 19.95. Speed and service availability aregood, but at a steep price.

Internet Access Cost
Amount: $10.00
Posted by: treyk in austin, TX.Posted: March 17th, 2009 08:03AM
Provider: at&tType of Connection: dsl basic
Speed: 300
basic dsl service offered by at&t. this is burried in the fine print under terms and conditions...I found this through economist Clark Howard and on his website. Absolutely the best deal by far. It's slow compared to other broadband but 10x better than dial-up. I've been on it for a couple of years now...no problems. Seems as if it was difficult to get AT&T to admit they had this product...I had to find it in the fine print as mentioned.

Gotta watch A T & T
Amount: $32.99
Posted by: Travlee in Lafayette, LA.Posted: July 22nd, 2008 11:07AM
Provider: A T & TType of Connection: DSL
Speed: fast enough
We've had DSL service with BellSouth/AT&T for about 9 years. Service is okay...but if your internet goes down it will take them sometimes 2-4 days to get service back up and don't expect them to credit you for those days...won't happen. My BIG problem with them happened about a year ago. A friend of ours got DSL service from AT&T at the same speed as ours (they have 3 speeds; we are in the middle)and the cost was about $8 a month cheaper. I called customer service to see why his rate was so much cheaper and was informed that the rates had gone down about six months ago. Asked why OUR rate hadn't gone down and was told that you had to ASK them to do this because they had no way to change all the customers rates. REALLY! I bet if the rate had gone UP they would have somehow FOUND a way to change everyone's rate. Maybe not legally wrong but ethically and morally WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!! Now I check the rates on the website every couple of months in case I need to "ask" again.

Verizon Fios Internet
Amount: $42.99
Posted by: Josh In Tampa in Tampa, FL.Posted: June 23rd, 2008 06:06PM
Provider: VerizonType of Connection: High Speed Fiber Optic
Speed: 10 Mbps Down / 2 Mbps Up
I've had Verizon's Fios service for a few years and I am very happy with the speed for the cost. This is a far superior speed product when compared to DSL or Road Runner. The Verizon customer service isn't the best, but the speed and reliability of the internet connection make up for it.

T*Mobile at Starbucks is expensive
Amount: $40.00
Posted by: Coffee Fiend in San Mateo, CA.Posted: July 16th, 2007 06:07PM
Provider: T*Mobile HotspotType of Connection: wifi
Speed: happy with the speed
I occasionally get my work done at cafes, especially when contractors are working on the home and I need to be productive elsewhere. In March, I signed up for the T Mobile because I go to Starbucks a lot and they had a deal where your first month was free. But I was checking my bills over recently, and I realized $40 a month is a lot considering a few months I didn't surf at Starbucks at all. I'm thinking about cancelling my plan and either paying by the hour or subscribing only during months when I think I'll be working there a lot. Also, more and more restaurants offer wifi for free.

Pretty happy with Comcast Cable Modem
Amount: $46.00
Posted by: PCGuyinCali in San Jose, CA.Posted: December 13th, 2006 04:12PM
Provider: ComcastType of Connection: Cable modem
Speed: 2.3Mbps
Even though DSL was available at our home, I subscribed to the Cable Modem because I wanted the fastest thing possible. Right now, according to CNet's bandwidth test
(http://reviews.cnet.com/7004-7254_7-0.html), I'm getting 2.3Mbps, which is OK, but almost as slow as a good cable modem. We got an introductory rate of $14/month for 2 months, before it went up to $46/month. We also get standard cable from them; I don't know if this gives us a small discount on Internet access.
