Recommended Posts

...I am in FL right now, on a vacation, and my friend still suffers by surfing (if you wanna call that surfing) the net via AOL - i am trying to persuade her into switching to DSL - her phone number does not qualify for Yahoo SBC, but I have an OK for verizon dsl.  Their advertisement says she will be gettting 1st three months for 19.95 and every other month for 29.95 (with a one year contract) ... what kind of speeds should i expect with that package in FL - anybody knows ? Reliability ? Is there a better ISP for that kind of money in FL (St Petersburg/Tampa) ? Also, does the price after a 12 month contract stay 29.95 or does it increase/decrease....

Any help is very welcome ;) Thank you :) !

and also...will they alow us to renew the contract ? wouldnt they kind of consider it fraud - cuz it would be cheating them ? or you can actually renew the contract without them suspecting anything....you know what i mean :) but i guess it does make sense to have it cheaper if you renew the contract, since they would rather have a customer for 3 years paying 29 than a customer for 1.5 year paying 37 :)
