Name: Verizon
Website: verizon.net
Cost: $29.99/month
Speed: 1.5mbps up, 386kbps down
Services: Comes with decent verizon email, and MSN service.
Location: Bloomington, IL
Overall: Very satisfied, the router/modem is great, never blacks out, and always is at the full speed advertised (99.9% of the time)... can't wait till my contract expires and I can get 3mbps down for the same price...
Only bad thing is that router does not have USB connections as advertised, and it's pretty difficult to figure out how to disable the Wifi connection, no manual.. Confused ( i dont use it)

Name: Cabovisão
Website: cabovisao.pt
Cost: 19,83€/month
Type:Cable
Speed: 512 kbps upstream, 512 kbps downstream (that's not it...)
Services: A decent mail box and 13 GB (download/upload) free per moth.
Location: Portugal
Overall: Not has satisfied as I used to be, because there have been lots of blackouts.

Name: Starhub
Website: www.starhub.com.sg
Cost: $58/month (around there)
Speed: 2mbps download
Services: NIL
Location: singapore
comment: Very good service. It is much better than Singnet actually, from the costs and the uptime. However, sometimes the Starhub cable in Indonesia gets cut off, and the access to overseas sites becomes laggy.

Slow downs, but not frequently. Usually on certain sites... Rolling Eyes

izcool
Name: SBC Yahoo! DSL
Website: http://sbc.yahoo.com/
Speed: 1238 kbps down / 313 kbps up (According to a test done at http://www.dslreports.com/)
Services: Not sure, I don't use any of them
Location: Elmhurst, IL
Overall: Good enough service for the money, I had Comcast Cable before I moved to this new house. The only thing bad about Comcast Cable that I appreciate about SBC Yahoo! DSL is that you can run your own web server. It's doing fine for now (the service gone offline for a few times on account of weather) so there's no real need to change.

Oh, lol, as for AOL, I thought of this video - http://gprime.net/video.php/americaonline - sorry. Embarassed

I'm currently using 56K dialup, but getting ADSL (just waiting for the router to arrive)

Here's what I'm getting:
Name: TPG Internet
Website: http://www.tpg.com.au/
Cost: AU$50 per month
Speed: 1.5Mb/s download, 256Kb/s upload
Services: Email, 10MB webspace, Free technical support
Location: Australia
Overall: I don't know, I'm not connected with them yet. I believe that they've got the best value broadband in Australia.

And here's what I'm using at the moment
Name: MyNet Prepaid
Website: http://www.mynet.net.au/
Cost: AU$20 for 145 hours
Speed: Dial-up speed (up to 56Kb/s download, up to ~36Kb/s upload)
Services: Email, 10MB webspace, Free Technical Support
Location: Australia
Overall: Good value prepaid dialup.

If you get cable, the speed depends on how many other people in your area have cable. If lots of people have cable, it will be really slow. If you learn about networking, then you'll learn this (cable is a bus topology, so all the bandwidth is shared)
Asylum
Name(s): Cox Communications and SBC ADSL
Website: cox.com
Cost: $39.99/month and $24.99/month
Type:Cable and ADSL
Cable Speed: 768 kbps upstream, 5Mbps downstream
ADSL Speed: 512kbps upstream and 3Mbps downstream
Location: Las Vegas, NV
Overall: Never goes off and is as advertised.

They are load balanced together as one connection using a CyberGuard 710 router
nunosilva
Name: netcabo
Website: http://www.netcabo.pt
Speed: 256kbps up 2000 kbps down
Services: email service
Location: Portugal
Overall: better this than none...
Price: 36€ I think

I like it because it's fast, even though there are other ISP's here but I've not tested them... It's bad because I only get 1Gb for international downloads, and 40Gb (or 20Gb) for national downloads... At least it has happy hours on late night, that makes it possible to download stuff for free! Very Happy
bigdan
Name: Telstra Bigpond
Website: www.bigpond.com
Speed: 56kbps dialup, on campus I get 50.6kbps, at home I get around 28kbps-31.2kbps
Cost: $35 dollars a month unlimited downloads and hours
Services: E-mail, discount on songs from Bigpond Music
Location: Australia
Overall: Not too bad...they got rid of the free webspace, and stuff like sports coverage is only if you signup for their broadband coverage.

Name: Ontera
Website: www.Ontera.ca

Telstra?!?!?! You should change to TPG for $50 per month and get 1.5Mb/s. Just DON'T go with Telstra's Broadband as their plans are just not worth it.

wow that's really expensive dialup ^^ $35... sheesh...

I believe it's $35 Australian, which is about $27 US. It's still the most expensive dialup I've seen, even more expensive than some unlimited 256Kb/s broadband plans!

The pricing of ISP in Hong Kong is lower... about US$20/month for 1.5M! Laughing
GiLaD
Name: Bezeq International
Website: http://www.bezeqint.net
Speed: Up to 5Mbps for home clients.
Services: Home Networks, Business Class High-Speed Broadband, IPvPN, Hosting services.
Location: Israel.
Overall: The best ISP avilable here in Israel, and also the fastest and the most secure. I really like it. But I can't understand who needs 5Mpbs connection...
Hoss
Name: Alltel DSL
Website: http://www.alltel.net
Speed: 3Mb/s Down and 384 Kb/s Up
Services: I just like the internet service, I don't use their E-Mail, and as far as I can tell, they don't monitor my connection, which I love. Privacy = <3
Location: United States http://www.alltel.com/business/wholesale/fiber_map.html
Overall: Eh, I like it. It's Comcast's only DSL compitition up here, I chose 3MB DSL over 6MB comcast because I have neighbors (who's computers I've worked on ^_^) who complain about the speed drops at certain times of the day and certain days.
xorcist
I used to use AOL it was so messed up with dialup becuase everytime someone knocks off my phone it just mess's up and everything. But Now I have DSL by Bellsouth its only in like South United States.
Donutey
its a good thing that speeds have started to rise, it was stuck sooo long at 56k... now it seems like it doubles every year...

i remember at one time my dad ( who lived in an area w/o dsl or cable internet) was considering paying USD 500 for a satelite 256kbps connection hookup then USD 99 every month... luckily for his financial health he decided to wait for dsl Rolling Eyes
