Who is your internet provider?

We have absolutely awful internet. We are in some kind of Bermuda triangle of internet service. We moved into the house almost 8 years ago and were told that AT&T DSL was not available but they were supposed to be adding towers. Never happened. They offer their U-verse in part of our neighborhood, but when they check my address they say it is not available. We have been using Clear.com but the connection rarely even gets up to 1Mbps and it drops all the time. We have satellite tv but internet is too expensive. I have just scheduled the cable company to come out next weekend and we will try them out (but we are keeping our satellite tv).

Who do you use for internet and what kind of speeds do you get? What type of service is it, ie cable, dsl, satellite, etc. Do you like it?

All I know about mine is that it's through frontier which is the phone company in my area.  I have high speed wireless internet and I pay 39.99 a month.  It works pretty good for the most part

Do you have many devices connected at once? I have been told that can slow it down but we can't even stream Netflix or anything.

I was hoping to stay with them so I won't have to change my email. We actually pay for dial up with at&t to keep our email addresses but we also have Clear. It's time for me to leave at&t altogether. It's crazy that a house down the street can get it but I can't.

 I don't have an internet service provider. I use the WiFi on my phone to get online. I guess that means it is cricket. I pay 5 a mo for the hot spot.

We have Comcast. I think we get 46. Not sure how much it is because our cable is all bundled with it. I had clear for a while forever ago, it was terrible

Ours is bundled with our cable provider. It's high speed, but I don't know specifics.
