I've only been with Earthlink since Feb.'04 but I've had zero problems in that time. Well, except for a bad cable from the wall to my modem but I suspect my wife's furniture rearrangement had a big part in that.

thx for the input and am just wondering y they only offer 512 i meen how can they compete with Comcast abd optimum or even rcn

they gotta up the speed even more

Yea, sadly The whole time warner division, who a few months ago was on top...is now falling way behind. If something else is avaliable in my area im switching.. if not then Elink it is, but flawless service for the most part for the past few years.
