What are my ISP options?


Are there any blog readers can help me make a decision on my home internet connection?  I haven’t had a connection at home and need one now and really don’t know my high speed options other than Comcast.  Help!

    Around here its really just Bellsouth and Comcast, unless you live in a Knology area. The best people to tell you opinions would be neighbors, because high speed internet is really, really, really, really location specific. I have great results out of comcast, but other Oak Ridgers who live a few blocks away or across town don’t.

    Comcast just seems SO expensive for me! I don’t need a home phone and I already pay $80 a month for cable, I just don’t wanna add another $40 to it!

    I dig that man. Cable is stupid expensive. Hell, broadband in general out this way is way overpriced. Out west, it tends to be half as much.
    I don’t have (or want) a home land line, so I go with cable. DSL isn’t offered without a home phone, so you have to have that albatross to go with anything but cable.
    Another option (if you just have a laptop) could be the cards that let your computer surf on the cellular network. They’re more expensive, not quite as fast, but you have internet everywhere.

    If you have a land line, I recommend AT&T (formerly Bellsouth) DSL. Happened upon your blog via Knox Blab. When on a kayak paddle a few weeks ago, one person asked about Internet service. She had Comcast and her husband hadn’t been able to access the Web in weeks due to a cable problem. She believes it’s because they live on a short street not too far from Knoxville Center and that they are just not a priority customer. In anycase, I’m on my way out there to install AT&T DSL on their computer.

    But I DON’T have a landline. Ugh. Why can’t we live in one of those free-google-wi-fi cities?!?1
