Like the title says, i'm in the market for something better than I have now. Right now I run on Covad, which is a branch of Verizon. It's always down, and that it's always on a strict NAT is annoying. So reccomendations! Something fast, and with wide cpabilities!

I have comcast and the cable goes out all the time :( But they are the only cable ISP out here, goddamn monopoly. crash.gif

I have Comcast too, but mine very rarely goes out. When it does go out though, it's out for HOURS . Still though it's pretty rare, and it's really fast too. And yeah... it's like a monopoly here, so its more or less the only path for cable haha.

Pretty much that with Comcast for me as well. Not down often at all, but usually shits out for a while when it does. One note, Comcast seems to absolutely hate if you use routers, or atleast certain types. If I use my older linksys I am guaranteed atleast one modem/router reset per day. However if I daisy chain my stuff, it works fine.

I don't know if you get this up in Massachusetts but, I use Optimum Online. Its my cable company. I have this package where they provide, Television, Cable, and Phone and in the long run it saves alot of money. They use to be a bit buggy in terms of connection reliability, but as of lately they've done alot of work on their network and I would be very much surprised if I ever got disconnected from a game or something. But like I said, I'm not sure if this is a Tri-state thing or a North Eastern border thing.

I have Earthlink, but they do everything through comcast, and I'm in the same boat as Crush when it comes to choices

Charter Communications. Which is... you guessed it. Comcast. It did go out a lot in Utah, but here in California it's pretty much flawless. It's only gone down like 2 times since I moved here and it wasn't down for long.
