    cable here. one of the few options we can get. no DSL(to far away) and I doubt a T1 line is anywhere near. we had dialup for a few years. it works just can do squat for videos.

    I voted none, because I currently haven't had any internet service at my home for over a year. I either use my laptop on the free WiFi at the neighborhood cafe a block and a half away, or my girlfriends cable internet when I'm over at her house where I hooked up my old wireless router into her system so we can each use our own routers with our own laptops.

    I have Satelite for the last 2 years,..can't say i'm impressed.It turned out to be as slow as dialup but 3 times the money and it's not unlimited either
    Dialup is no longer avalable in my area.

    I convinced my folks to use a Verizon wireless 3G card, an upgrade from dial-up which is the only internet available to the area. But because I don't want to use up their data, because I use a lot, I use my phone's hotspot.

    What do you pay for antenna service? We pay $50 a month unlimited usage.

    We have broadband, I've done upload/download tests and 95% of other users of our ISP are faster. WTF?

    I have Comcast/Xfinity and their Internet is very fast and the reliability in my area is great.

    Frontier keeps telling me that they have high speed service in our area. But it's not true. LOL They set up an appointment and the tech tells me I'm to far our for service.

    happened 3 times now over the course of a couple years
