Red face So I finally said F it, and signed up

for Verizon DSL. This dial up is killing me. I would never wish this onto my worst enemy. I click a thread, wait, wait, wait, wait, icon, wait, wait, image, wait wait, wait, thread. I've had so many problems with Verizon in the past, is why I've been so hesitant to sign up.

Ah well. All is said and done, I will be back to high speed next Thursday.

Nope. The apartment complex across the street has comcast internet.

Risk:
I never had ANY problems when I had Comcast internet. It was always up.


I've had countless problems with Verizon, and have spent countless hours on the phone to get the service up when it went down.

No problems with comcast here either, just a little pricey

Some people are like Slinkies- Not really good for anything, But they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

Verizon has worked ok for me since I switched from Comcast. A little trouble getting everything running but can't beat 15M/2M plan for $45 a month. Uploads are quite a lot faster now...
