Advice please
« on: November 13, 2006, 11:21:49 AM »
I am thinking of finally getting DSL. Dial up is killing me.

There is an offer from Qwest for this service in my area. It would be about $5 a month more than my current provider charges, but it would be worth it.

Has anyone had any experience with Qwest? Aside from my land line, which has never presented any problems, I have no idea how good their service is.

I'm sure you'll get your nay-sayers about DSL, but from what my parents and friends say the Qwest service isn't bad.  I happen to use Comcast to get a discount w/ cable (and no land line), but when I've used other people's computers I honestly can't tell the difference. 

Unless you're doing videos, I think you'll be happy and amazed as to why you haven't switched sooner!

I've had Verizon for a couple months and it's like heaven on Earth.  They're all kinda iffy, sucks for some; works perfectly for others!

   I use Comcast because I have no land line.. it's about 48.00 a month.

   My friend has quest and I've used it and could not see any difference.

   I think some of the issues come by way of customer service by the providers.   I had Bellsouth fastaccess dsl before and I thought their customer service was awesome...albeit from India ( would you like a slurpee with your dsl?)...

    Mark I don't know how you've managed with dial up all this time.  I've tried and found encyclopedias more interesting..lol.
