Get FIOS. A bit more expensive though (5mb for $40).

I'll be sure to upgrade as soon as I find a good deal (it was $30 for 5mb a while ago..)


What's so good about FiOS?Smiley Very Happy


Better customer service and the price for $50 is not bad. If you have to then get comcast.

I would get the $50 for 15 Mbps/2 Mbps, since thats not a bad price.


We pay $30 for 1.5/400. I don't want the cost to go up more than say..$5. And speed won't be too much of a big deal but if I can get fios for only $5 more and 5x the speed, I will. (it was cheaper before..so I'll wait Smiley Very Happy)

think different

geese $20 bucks is not alot for the speed and time you save downloading but whatever floats your boat.

So 8 Mbps is fast enough to download files in the range of 1-1.5 gigabytes in a few hours? I download quite a few large files every week.

Theres really two factors
1. How many people are using their cable at the same time, and if there is alot it becomes slower
2. Where you download from and how much it can support.

1. It varies for me i usually get about 200-500 KBPS depending where I download
2. Speed is not gurantee. Check if you can get Verizon FIOS. I have comcast and many issues with them.



Same with me
