I'm looking around for an internet service provider in the Burlingame/Millbrae part of the Peninsula.
In addition to all the standard email/web surfing/whatnot I'm going to be using my service for Netflix/MLB.tv streaming so I'm particularly interested in a package with high (or no) data caps and limited (or no) throttling even if it costs a bit more.
I'm not particularly interested in TV/phone but wouldn't necessarily object to a package deal if it was a good value. I'd also be curious how much you pay for service and what your specific plan/package is if you'd care to divulge that info.
From some initial research it appears my primary choices are:
Setting aside whether or not a particular company actually serves my neighborhood, I'm interested in hearing your experiences with these companies if you're a customer. I know Comcast and AT&T are members of The Collective Evil(tm) [my own relatives have had plenty of experiences in that regard] but I would like to get some feedback about the other guys on the list. Or another company if I've missed one. Or even hearing from satisfied Comcast/AT&T customers (I know there must be one or two of you out there...). Many thanks in advance!
