I'm moving (have cable now) to an area that does not offer cable modem service. I am, however, in a xDSL area where I believe I am 10,000 feet to the nearest switching station in the Dallas\Ft. Worth area (Euless specifically).
I'm looking for a good ISP that offers at least 384k upload bandwidth for under 100 bucks a month. So far I've found many that meet these qualifications.
I've got several questions that maybe you experts can answer:
1) Do you have an ISP that you would recommend?
2) What the hell are COVAD and Northpoint? I am interested in an ISP(ticnet.com) that offers high-speed DSL with either COVAD or Northpoint.
3) Out of either COVAD or Northpoint, which would you recommend?
4) I'm all confused with maximum download speeds. On my cable, the maximum speed I see in the explorer box is about 400KB/sec. If I got a 1.5/384 DSL connection, what is the max that I would see...1500KB/sec????
Thanks for the information!!
