I will be moving in the next couple of months to a residence that gets different internet providers than I have now.

The address is 6400 Preserve Crossing Blvd, 43230, Ohio (a condo).

WOW, Insight (using roadrunner), and ATT Uverse seem to be the options. I know of no way to check local reviews on said services and it is a crap shot at figuring out who has better customer service.

The only other x factor in all this is TV. I currently have Dish Network (which is still available) and no complaints. However, there will be 3-4 tvs vs just the 2 I have now (operates off of one receiver).

So I could mix and match or just go with one provider for both services.

What I really need to know is which internet provider is the best choice? I want at least a 10mb connection. If you have any knowledge for the tv service put that in the comments as well.

Uverse TV is pretty bad. I suspect their ISP may be as well. There seem to be data flow issues. The TV is constantly stalling, sometimes for several minutes. Pretty annoying.

Well.... The only isp I have heard praise for is verizon fios. Kind of makes it hard to choose. Wow, roadunner, and att.... Hmmmmmmm.... I think it also depends on the area as some areas have more issues or stress on the bandwidth than others. Wish there were some local reports.

I live in outside Cleveland and if Roadrunner Turbo is the same thing as TWC Wideband 30 or 50 mbps I have it and it seems to be top notch. It never goes down it is always 30 mbps down and 5 up and I think 50 dollars per month.

The only down side is they make you use their modem and if you want to use the router or wireless on that modem it's like 10 bucks a month, so you need to buy your own router so you get their free modem and don't have to pay 120.00 a year for a 70.00 modem.

Wow, I know I'm paranoid, but I would never post my home address to a public forum.

I would say go with roadrunner, but only because I absolutely hate and don't respect AT&T (overpriced for their services IMHO). But I've never had any experience with roadrunner.

It is not a personal address, but the admin building of the complex. No worries.

Also.... I am going to look up more rates. And I am not sure how I feel about ATT and their horror stories with billing. Further isn't enhanced DSL (ATT) not as good as cable?

Ah, gotcha!

I'm not sure about AT&T being "enhanced DSL," but I used their regular DSL before with up to a 16/1 connection, and I never saw any instabilities in download speeds (not much of an uploader, so I couldn't comment on that), and I always pretty much got the max connection. I don't know how this translates into their "cable" services--but I thought their cable service was truly cable--it doesn't go through the phone lines where I am. Never had any problem with their billing for DSL, but I just dislike them as a company.

I have a 20meg down from Insight. I love Insight, never have had a problem from them.
Most of the time I get over 20 meg from my speedtest results.
And don't get me started on how much I hate AT&T's residential (not to mention business services.) I'll just put it quick and simple: I would rather have a colonoscopy than get ATT Uverse.

i've used both and roadrunner is so much better imho.

uverse pings way too high and has way too much fluctuation in speeds. uverse = fios + dsl <<< cable = cable.
the dsl part REALLY kills the whole uverse deal

just stick with road runner.
