Makes me wonder what the poll would have looked like a couple of years ago with a better economy.


Here is the same Poll from January 2008 . . .

medium speed dsl from ATT. I don't do movie/music downloading so I don't need anything faster. Having copper wire is nice. Even after the hurricanes, when the power is out I still have phone service.

$65 a month combined phone and internet through Qwest.
Fiber-optic to neighborhood utility box and twisted pair for the final 600-feet.
That utility box has a 120VAC meter protruding from it, if we lose power we lose phone and internet.

The important one for me is the uplink since I host servers here.

I used to pay several times more for the same 1Mbps up on SDSL!

At school the other day, I pulled off a 76 mbs down and 54mbs up.  Faster than my wireless will go, which is at a ~ 20 mbs (definitely not the 54 mbs it says).
