Title says it, I need suggestions on who I can pay for the internetz.
Well the two best in my opinion are definitely Road Runner aka Time Warner Cable, or AT&T. I heard good things about Verizon as well, but I heard it's a hit or miss depending on your location. Obviously when Google Fiber releases nationwide, that will be the best but until then, if you don't live in one of the chosen cities, you're out of luck for now. I have Road Runner right now and I've never had complaints. If you are going to use wired connection, don't bother with the Turbo Boost, but if you are going to operate off of Wireless exclusively, I'd check into it. Without turbo boost in a wired connection, I can usually get an average of 1.8MB/S when downloading Steam games, which is sufficient.
I'm sorry, Canadian internet not good enough for you eh?
Google Fiber isn't going to the rest of America, it's going to be ISPs stepping up their game and getting 1 Gigabit per second internet; this is already happening. I would go with a local ISP if I were you, they are generally more customer-friendly and appreciate your service. If the local ISPs around you are bad, then don't get AT&T--they have serious problems with YouTube. I can't attest to anything else.
Well, If I could get TWC or Comcast, I would.
Ohhh Canada. Well can't help you then. I know nothing about Canadian ISPs.
He's from Kentucky but here's a run down of Canadian ISPs
Rogers - High Price, High Throttle, 4mbps upload with 100mbps dl and their DNS is a potato
Bell - Like rogers but their DNS is an EXPENSIVE toaster
Tekksavy, like rogers but cheaper and more reliable but dosen't have high mbps dl packages.
Shaw - Dunno
Don't get version UNLESS they have fios....I have their "HIGHSPEED INTERNET" pack....if you have seen me ingame I get around 996 ping spikes
i have Verizon fios i never get ping spikes the servers are in Chicago and i live in pa its a good distance away and i got pon ave 22 ping.
I do like fios but regular "high speed internet" is just plain shite
ah okay i got eh quantum thing they have.
Comcast is where its at. You can get speeds like 50 Mbps for only around $50
No lol guys, Icy gets about 15mbps MEGABIT which is around 1.8 MEGABYTES and if you get charter, you can get twice that and you'll get 4mBps downloading which is super fast and gaming is amazing. It's cheap as well for 30 bucks a month for 30mbps
yea I'm on AT&T and it buffers alot even though I have a 3mb down. On 360p it does. They are shaping traffic.
verizon sucks dick
i have blue ridge tv internet and cable, 15mbps, 70 for cable and internet, doesnt crash unless my fucking router fails..xD
yeah its pretty reliable
Don't get comcast/xfinity. They are horrible :/
