Study Shows How Bad Most of the Country Is Getting Ripped Off By Their ISPs


Recommended Posts

Great article on Motherboard.



According to the report, tens of millions of AT&T, Verizon, and CenturyLink customers are stuck paying an arm and a leg for last-generation DSL that fails to even meet the FCC’s 25 Mbps definition of broadband. Frequently, these users are paying the same rate for substandard speeds as those in more competitive markets pay for much faster service.




How much do you pay and what are your speeds?

Exactly, I've got a client with a DSL subscription who pays $65/monthly for 3Mb/1Mb , the network is more or less useless. Considering ISP csays he is 'last in the line', where the line is flooded with customers before him. Across the road, no one services that area. And the trees block line of site for satellite.
