When I first moved into my house I decided to go with AT&T DSL. It was cheaper than cable and I figured for as much downloading as I do it would do. I was right. I had no problems with this modem, downloaded music with ease and connected to any site I wanted pretty fast.
I then got an offer from Comcast and switched over to cable. Well long stroy short that was a mistake. Their cable internet is great but the price just kept creeping up. I decided I was going back to AT&T.
When I called AT&T they asked me if I still had my modem and I said, I think its stored under the bed somewhere! They suggested I try to find it because they weren't offering them free anymore and I would have to pay $50 for a new one. So off I went under my bed (OK guys I know what your thinking, I have storage area under my waterbed with drawers!) and finally found it. I was a little concerned it had been under there for over a year and I wasn't sure if it would still work but worth a try instead of paying $50.
When AT&T called and said my DSL was up I plugged it in and crossed my fingers. Guess what? Worked like a charm and I haven't had one problem with it! I honestly can say the speed to me seems the same as cable. I am very happy with it and don't plan on changing anytime soon!
