I love fiber optic ... 3 different instances of Netflix running plus surfing the internet and maybe even playing the Ps3 online... never slows down

Well, this time of year I hear a lot of gunshots since it's deer season and there are more deer than people in my county.

I'll never shop again after fiber optic.Our town installed it, but couldn't make money with it, so a bigger company, called Metronet bought it.

They are the only service that provides to our area.
I bet your service is ATT. We finally cancelled them and have no internet. Just phones.

Their speed is better than dialup, but not anywhere near as good as 4G, and we're capped at 10GB/month. We pay $65/month for that crappy service. Our contract is up this month, and we'll probably drop them and just up our data plan on our cell phones and use them as a hot spot.
My wife and I were forced to get Verizon's home internet when we moved. $90/month for 20GB but the speed are just as fast as cable. I can't remember the specifics speeds off the top of my head.

We have metronet and it rocks. Fiber optic tv gets a hiccup once in a while though.

Wow, your upload speed is fast,usually it is less than the download. I hate that every fee in the nation is based on region,especially health insurance.

Can't say I've had to let YouTube videos buffer that much…

But when they do, it's always in the middle of an ad
