DSL at home.
3G/wifi on my cell
dial-up at work - really!
At work, I only use internet for email (and this forum), and near-free dial-up is just fine.

Had Bellsouth DSL for the longest time and constantly had problems with it going out. Switched to Cox cable a year ago or so and haven't had a single problem with it.

Stealing my neighbor's and I'm not kidding. She's a retired school teacher. Probably didn't even realize her wifi is wide open. The signal only reach one corner of my house, so I installed a signal repeater. It works great through the entire house.

I have Time Warner Cable. Service is very reliable and I'm getting about 17 mbps downstream.

Wideband is supposed to be here soon, which will be 50 mbps. But it'll cost $99 per month.

Comcast. Fast as hell but will never get over being pissed off at their 250gb cap policy. They keep upgrading my speeds for free to just make it easier and easier to hit that cap before month's end.

God, I hate all of you. (Except MoviePage... but at least he still has a decent ping.)

Re: How do you connect to the internets?

Seriously thinking of switching to At&t uverse, but the upfront cost would be $240 bucks. ugh. Cobridge Communications is the shittiest cable company. In the last two weeks, I've had a dozen outages usually lasting two hours, and on weeknights, the speed drops to slower than dialup. Also, any kind of storm will knock out cable and internet both. You can never reach a live human being when you call their support line either.
