I just wanted to say Adelphia Cable stinks. I moved back to WV and my mom got the Adelphia HSI 4mb line and it is nothing like my Road Runner 8mb line. I'm used to getting downloads from 800k-1mb. With this Adelphia High Speed Crapernet i get 40k-100k. This has to be the worst internet ever! Well I emailed Adelphia and told them what I though and I told them Dial Up was faster!

I'm running Cox and I get the full 6mbps during speed tests and I get a max of 2.5mbps d/l <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"> The max that I have stated is the fastest I have experienced.

Cable companies have you by the balls, at least they do here. Adelphia is now Time warner everywhere I'm pretty sure.. One day last week they just cut my speed down...200kbps down...Which is an unacceptable speed for the VoIP service I use meaning, I had no phone while they did this. No e-mail or phone call and 1 hour wait to get support..<br>
If there was something besides TW, (not DSL lol) I'd get it. Sigh, you don't 'vote' with your dollars when it comes to the cable companies...

It really depends on your location rather than the ISP. However, I agree with the Adelphia sucks bit; during summer my connection (even when plugged in directly to the main line) slows to a crawl for some reason.
