Nothing like consistency is there :)

Another update:

It's been almost a year since my last post, and I have just moved.  EarthLink DSL was not going to be available at my new address (although it's only 2 miles from the old address), so I switched to Verizon FiOS... signed up for one of their Internet + phone bundles.  I'm happy to report that the FiOS speeds are amazingly fast.  Download speed has been as advertised, right around 15 Mbps.  Uploads are supposed to be "up to 5" Mbps, and I'm getting between 3 and 4 Mbps so far.  No complaints... compared to my DSL days, this is like night and day.  If anyone out there has DSL or is considering it, and also has FiOS available in their area, I would highly recommend going with the FiOS.  In case the price is an issue - I figure that I will actually be saving approx. $50 per month on Internet and phone (combined), because of the FiOS bundle I got thru Verizon.  My only peeve is with Verizon's customer service; it is terrible.
