Looking at IP addresses, I see all sorts of different numbers. I am wondering if there is a pattern to provider.

I have Comcast.

What else is here?

Comcast here also. I've seen people make negative comments about them and their service. I guess I've been lucky
I've always had good customer service. I have had it go out from time to time, from a storm and a few times for no apparent reason.
But over all I would have to give them an A-.

I use ATT and have never had any problems with it.

Comcast...either they or the husband has figured out how to stay connected when Florence Utilities does that random turning off and on of our power. This used to require unplugging stuff, calling & having them reset stuff as well as restarting whatever you had been working on at the time...we ran our business out of a home office...fun times. We still get the power on/off thing occasionally, but internet stays connected now. I know the husband bought several new gadgets and gizmos though; so I might be giving them too much credit. Still, I'm glad we don't have those issues anymore.

NetspeedNow.
A truly FANTASTIC service for rural customers. After having AlwaysOffLine dialup for years, I found this new service. I had thought satellite was all I could get, and it sucked!
What they don't tell you about satellite, is that after so many downloads it slows down to dial up speed. Then you either have to wait a few days for it to speed back up, or "buy" credits to use.
This system uses cell phone towers, and operates off of Google Chrome. It is a small square receiver, about 10 inches wide, that attaches to you house.
I was fortunate enough to have a tower about 500 yards away, with a direct shot to my receiver.
It is always fast, and costs $39.95 per month. I also have my laptop and a wireless router through this system.

comcast here ..
/sigh.
it's awsome when it works... but like blu said.. if it's windy or raining, poof.
whenever we realize the internet is out, we always check outside to see if it's raining.
it usually is.

Since I switched to the digital feed of Comcast, it seems reasonably stable. Any body connect through a cell phone or Blackberry?

I have one that keeps coming up Guru and that is listed as California. Anybody here from Calif?
