very happy with it, but watch out as they can play hell with your bill and probably will overcharge you for a month or 2. they've had to credit us for the money we overpaid (supposd to be $35 or so a month with a phone line strapped on) but on one month it was $50 something and in another it came to $83. we were being billed for the tier above us
it's fast at most times except from 6 to 12 midnight, and it's also uncapped. i personally couldn't be happier and coming from 110kb/s max dl's on torrents it's a nice jump.
i'd do a speedtest but i'm DLing something at the moment and don't want to stop (not resumable)
I'm in the exact situation and also in GA
I'm on 6mbit/s plan and it's quite fast but if you download torrents sometimes att slows my connection down to stupid 200kbyte/s... I think it just depends on the torrents that they decide to throttle your internet.
Anyway here it is:
In my area, whenever it rains, my connection is intermittent on and off every 1 minute.... They sent technicians to check it once and never found a problem in my house so i think it's just stripped telephone line somewhere that the water hits...
