I don't know how reliable it is, but dslreports tells me my dsl speed
with Speedfactory is:
1215 kbps down (which rates as AWESOME on their graph)
215 kbps up (which rates between fast and faster on their graph)
I've been very pleased with their service. Nary a burb. I've had a few
times where I've seen problems, but they were resolved before they
answered the phone, and a person always answers the phone.
I've got special needs so my pricing is a bit high, but I called them
for a standard dsl connection and the quote was $49 a month. There are
install charges as well as hardware charges as well, but they've got a
hardware special running right now. No bandwidth limitations either.
I wouldn't touch Bellsouth with a 10 mile fiber line...

I didn't have to buy my radio from a specific company to listen
to FM, why doesn't that apply to the Internet (anymore...)?
