Comcast, from the gates of hell I spit at thee!

DSL in Minneapolis. Recommendations, experiences, ISPs of note.

Comcast is awful. I get horrible digital service and the speed is nothing impressive. I am probably going to go satellite for cable but I need internet service that is fast, reliable and not too expensive. I have a wireless network in the house and use Apple TV. I do a lot of work online so lots of uploading and downloading.

Have you considered using the Minneapolis WiFi network? It's prety decently priced if you get a good signal where you're at.

USI Wireless is the provider. Here's more info.

We had Qwest DSL for years but it kept going down so often that we had to drop it. We now have Comcast which is a huge improvement but no where as fast as they claim.

I've heard that Speakeasy is a high-end and not-evil internet provider. DSL starts at $50 a month. They were bought by Best Buy last year, so I guess they're local to Minneapolis now.

Has anyone tried satellite for internet in Minneapolis?

Full Disclosure - I work for AT&T but don't get any discount on my bill.


I have AT&T DSL at my NE apartment, and I also have AT&T as a local carrier. But, I am pretty sure you don't have to have them for local to use them for DSL. My bundled bill is ~$80 per month, and I haven't had any problems that were their fault (my router is the problem).

I had Qwest DSL back in '01 and they messed up my bill so much that I refused to use them for anything again.
