well, i'm looking to get off SBC DSL since my modem keeps losing the connection after a while. i got an ad for Earthlink cable, but i wonder if they're just the middle man for time warner or what not. anyway, anyone have any experience with them?

i have it and it rocks...i get 3 to 5 mb/s download speeds. however, i think their service will really depend a great deal on the quality of your local cable provider. the other negative is the rediculous amount of spam my mindspring email account gets. but it has been very reliable and significantly faster than even the best dsl i ever had (bellsouth in atlanta.)

sounds good. there's an offer for $29.99 for 6 mo, and $42 after that. not the best offer out there, but it'd be worth it if it's reliable.

Yes, but I'm biased because they sign my paychecks

wish it was available where I'm at
