Sure I'm selling my soul, but the download speeds are so damn fast!

Due to Comcast and Verizon's opposition to Net Neutrality, I want to take my internet and wireless business elsewhere. Problem: I switched to both services to get faster connection/better coverage, and it worked. Are there any alternatives that would keep me well-connected? [more inside]

Help me understand my basic home internet setup.

I wish I could troubleshoot my home internet service and wireless network when they're acting funny. I'm computer-literate but I only have the vaguest sense of how networks do what they do, I don't mind reading technical stuff, and I'd like to end up with a useful set of intuitions about how the damn thing works. What should I read?

Best 4g broadband deal in Seattle?

4g Wireless broadband in Seattle: I'm considering replacing my Qwest DSL with 4g wireless broadband. (A cable modem solution isn't available in my building.) Also, I think I'd be purchasing the home modem version of the plan upon which I decide. I have plenty of mobile internet with my iPhone. Fast enough to stream netflix is my benchmark. It seems like Sprint is the best deal. What say you? Thanks!

Municipality provides broadband infrastructure; ISPs provide content?

Smart people: I'm trying to understand the issues relating to municipal broadband.

Can my ISP force me to buy their branded router?

I currently use AT&T as our broadband ISP at home. Our five-year-old modem/router just died, and since it's so old, AT&T tells me that it's no longer under warranty, and I have to buy a new one myself. Then they directed me to an AT&T Wireless retail store to go buy the equipment. But can they force me to buy one of their routers? What if I can find a comparable one cheaper somewhere else? Can they refuse me customer service or deny me installation help (which I will need - I'm hopelessly n00bulous in this department) if I don't by an "official" AT&T router? [more inside]

Croatia Online!

What is the best way to get unlimited net access in Croatia without per minute data charges? We're going to Croatia for a few weeks and will need reliable net access for VPNing back home. I'm fine with paying a bit extra for a temporary DSL/Cable install - we will be staying in a home so mobile access is not necessary. Something faster than 56k modem speed would be preferred.
