I’m just plain dialup…

    And I can’t take it anymore...smile

    I am humbly asking for ISP recommendations for DSL.

    In USA.

    Who do you recommend,

    And,

    Who to avoid like the plague.

    I thank you in advance for your help. My initial research resulted in a quagmire.

      Like another mentioned here, for DSL I have used Qwest with MSN. It was decent enough, especially in comparison with dial-up. Though now I use broadband with Comcast and it's much faster.

      You can do a speed test to see how your connection is. I think the site I used to check mine was speedtest.net. I think it also tells you how that compares with other internet users.

      Oh and I'm a penny pincher so I've never paid much over 60 for my phone and internet and I have unlimited long distance.

    Dial-up here also. HughesNet is available, but why pay 5 times what I am paying now for only doubling my internet speed? And no guarantee of better service?

    I know people who have had HughesNet and they cancelled it.

    We have the new Suddenlink U-Verse lines run on the poles in front of my home, but Suddenlink says they are not for this area.
    (SuddenLink is being used a 1/4 mile up the road)

    Still getting nowhere on the research.

    I shall flip a coin.

    I am still interested in best priced ISP.

    And who to avoid for whatever reason.

      I use MSN through my qwest telephone company.  At one time I had landline, cell phone, TV and web services, but have dropped all but TV and the DSL line for internet only (no landline).  Cost is about $30 for both the dsl line + MSN.  I'm happy with it.

    No wonder my internet connection has turned to crap…

    I just read a news article that Verizon is sabotaging connection speeds for heavy users in order to get rid of them.

    A belated thank you to Michael Willis and to wilderness.

    And thank you, nell79.

    Two votes for Qwest with MSN. I will check it out.
