Are you looking for inexpensive but effective dsl service. Remember that dsl is still the best option worth looking at. Especially when service begins at great prices. Windstream DSL speed varies by package but are very affordable.
DSL today is not the DSL of yesteryear. I remember when I went to college I use to have to go to the computer center to submit my Fortran programs on punch cards. I am a slow typist so it took me forever to write a 500 line Fortran program.
I also remember the first time I dropped a box of the cards. The problem was I did not have the cards numbers so they were all out of order and I had to restart the entire process. I
Luckily Radio Shack had just come out with the color computer. I purchased one and then bought a 300 baud modem. Wow, in those days 300 baud seemed extremely fast. I also remember the simple word editor it came with. I used this to write my Fortran programs going forward. I no longer had to worry about punch cards.I no longer had to worry about dropping my box of cards and having to rebuild them.
Now after leaving college I remember then getting a 2400 baud modem. Wow was that fast. At that point we thought things could not get any better or any faster. Of course I then got a 9600 baud modem. We surely could not get any faster. Of course I then got the 56K modem. I stopped making predictions other than dial up will remain viable.
