You never heard of ATT Uverse?  Maybe it is just in the west but its the biggest thing except for comcast infinity.   They are giving me a special promotional rate for 6 months but they only go up to 6mbps.  The only reason I asked what you were paying is it seems I am paying too much if you are getting 20mbps.

Yeah I just did a test on that link that one avatar provided.  They wanted me to pay $41 a month and I asked if any promotions and then they dropped it to $23 but only for 6 months.  The test ran a little under 6mbps and that is for their top tier which is called elite.

In this day and age, 6Mbps is rather slow. I get roughly 30 down, 5-6 up.
If you can I would recommend you find another ISP. 6 is okay; it's not exactly bad, but there are much better, faster options out there.

And I practically had to grovel to get that.   I got a year for 14.95 promotion but it just ended.  They are charging $28 for less than 1mbps  What I got is called Elite and it is their top tier. and after 6 months they want me to pay $41.

To be honest, it sounds like you're getting ripped off. If 6Mbps down is their top, I don't even wanna know what their lowest is.
