I'm in Washington, D.C. I have Verizon DSL, but it's painfully slow, and in the past couple of weeks, it has gotten completely unreliable. It times out about every minute. Talked to tech support, and they've offered nothing.
It's the 1.5Mb/s service, which is the fastest they offer at my address (no FiOS, either). It's always been slow, but at least fast enough to watch a Netflix show with a little time for buffering. Now Netflix just balks.
, I'm even more wanting to get out of Verizon.
Comcast refuses to offer service to my address due to the last tenant (over four years ago!) not paying their bill. So, that's not an option. RCN does not service my area (northern Columbia Heights).
I've been looking at Clear, and wondering if anybody has any experience with it as a home ISP. Will Netflix work in standard def? Can two people browse at the same time and not want to gnaw their arm off?
Is there another option?
