Default Internet Providers

Any suggestions for Internet Providers north of 466. We recently had a problem with CenturyLink.

I have had Comcast for years. They had an Internet only price 4 years ago for $65/mo. Competition has forced them down to the $45 to $49/mo range. Four years ago I told them I would not pay $65 and after battling through a few of their sale staff I got to Customer Retention and stated I could get service for considerably less so unless they would lower my price I would bail. With an annual call, ending with Customer Retention, my monthly pricing has been from $19.95 to $34.95. Currently I am paying $29.95.

I have comcast and will soon be dumping them the amount of internet going in and out of my house is horrible they have sent people out and there is nothing they can do I will have to purchase boosters to make their junk equipment work. oh and charged me 60 dollars service fee. or put my modem six feet in the air in the center of the house (my dining room) for it to work. I have an amerillo only 1350 sq ft and I have horrible internet from the front bedroom to the frontroom most of the time. we had century link at first and they were great but price just kept going up. I wonder if spectrum comes up here.

You might want to look into buying your own "modem/router" as it may provide you better Wi-Fi performance. Check with your provider for a list of compatible equipment. I have no issues with Wi-Fi performance with my own 802.11ac router.
