In search of broadband
June 4, 2012 2:33 PM   Subscribe

I have recently moved to Culver City (Southern California) and I need the best broadband available.

Fast, at least 1mbps, No capping, No iffy uptime. Just solid and reliable down/up speeds. I don't care if its wireless, wired, copper, cable, tin-cans-and-string. I will be using VOIP, ROKU, and heaving uploads/downloads (work related). I do not wish to spend over $100/month

My new zip is 90232

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Do NOT use Clear Wireless. See my comment here.

Time Warner Cable has excellent speeds and reliability. It's part of my bundle, so I can't say how much it is, but it would probably fall within your budget. Also, they have specials all the time & provide the equipment.

Availability from neighborhood to neighborhood really varies, so you'll have to check...but I work with a pretty tech-savvy crowd on the westside and the generally favored option is FIOS.

I'll second FIOS and it's weird availability, so yeah, look into it for your block.

FIOS is not available, next option?
