So, I'm thinking about changing ISP's now that Burlington actually has an alternative to Comcast. I mostly use the net for mucking and web-surfing. I watching streaming video but not a _huge_ amount of the time, and while I do occasionally do large downloads, it's nothing I couldn't usually have just running in the background. So I suppose I'm not a "power" user these days so much as a bit more than a "casual" one.

That being said...

[Poll #1076550]

Any insight appreciated. Please feel free to ask questions before voting.

BTW, I always vote myself just to make it easier for me to see results. Don't assume I in any way endorse my own answer. :)

while that's probably right, you may also have learned a lesson from mcdonalds. "You can Extra Biggie Super Mega Size It for just 40 cents more!" is not the option you usually want to pick, even though you get a lot more calories for only 40 more cents.

while not exactly the same, I would reason that iago wants to save money, so going with the 17 dollars a month option would save money, and 1MBit is pretty decent. (we have a T1 at work and it's certainly plenty unless you actively download a lot of Stuff.)

Are you going to vote, or just comment? :)

I don't think I'd necessarily be happy at 1MBit...can that handle streaming video and such at a good clip?

oh, sorry. I vote for 1mb. :P but, I don't know if streaming video will or won't work. what bitrates are we talking about for the streaming video? what streaming video do you watch?
