    Comcast. Just did a speed test: 16.7 Mbps

    At my apartment I had speeds around 28 Mbps which was nice.

    DSL here... (I live in the Boonies and it's my only high speed option) I'm served by a Canadian carrier called MTS Allstream. I get 800 Kb/s, so it's not all that bad.

    I have to travel 20 miles to get to the nearest 3G coverage area.. I only get Edge where I live, so WiFi wins out :)

    DSL...I pretty much hate the local cable co and Ma Bell so my options are DSL or dial-up. I'm pretty close to the central office though so my speeds are good.

    Comcast cable TV, but my ISP is composed of two different DSL services: Verizon and local small-shop.

    Comcast cable. It took 3 repairman 3 visits to get it to work in cold weather, but has been good service since.

    Where I am in Texas, I can't get cable or DSL, so I am limited to satellite. It is slow and the bandwidth used is closely monitored but the only other option is dial-up. My iPad is 3G and that works pretty well around the ranch. You cable guys seem to have the best option.

    FiOS. A huge improvement over DSL for both speed and reliability.

    iSpot.

    Clear iSpot.

    $25/mo, no contract, unlimited data, 4G (6mbps down/1mbps up), up to 8 devices tethered at once, 150ft range (that's half a football field!), and best of all.. It fits in my pocket.

    Mobile router costs $99 normally, however, if you catch it on sale, you can snag one for $20. (they ran 80% off specials during Thanksgiving weekend, and for five days last week)

    More info at www . Clear . Com / iSpot
    www.clear.com/ispot

    Worth checking to see if you're in their 4G area. :)

    Cox Cable feeding a Linksys E3000 router. Real fast and I always have at least three other devices online with it. Never had a problem, even with up to 4 of us streaming at one time.
