    Mine is Time Warner, but my d/l speed while I'm Netflix streaming is much faster than the average. I guess my speed increases the average. I would hate to be the person who is below average.

    Cablevision.


    ATT mobile slower than SPRINT & TMOBILE? That is surprising. No surprise Verizon is #1.

    Google Fiber would cost $140b for a nationwide rollout, due to the fact they offer the free internet option the government may invest at some point. Google has $45b on hand so it is nowhere close.

    FIOS, and it is smoking fast. Never had a single issue.

    Cablevision is the WORST! I switched from Verizon FIOS to them to save some money and regret it. I've called them to come fix problems at least 7 times and its only been about 4 or 5 months since I've had them.

    Verizon FIOS. Not the top tier, though.

    It was a few MB faster with my Apple Airport Express but the thing stopped working a few days ago and had to go back to my old router. Very weird.

    75/35 plan, but for some reason it seems more like 85/35. Not complaining though.

    How much does that cost you if you don't mind me asking?

    I'm extremely jealous.

    99.99 gets me 18 down, 5 up, intermittent 15 second dropouts & Basic TV with Time Warner Cable.

    This has always been my experience with FIOS, always gotten higher than the advertised rate. I have the same plan as well. It's way overkill, but hard to pass up at the price.

    My parents are paying around that for TV/Internet at 30 down, wonder if Charter has something like yours.
