Good to know. I am more concerned with a good internet connection than having broadcast television. I could live without TV as long as I could stay connected.

I use choice and netflix works awesome. I tried to go with broadband VI and I could not wait 2 weeks for someone to come out to install it. I also was only going to live at original place for 6 months so I would waste money on install each time I moved.

80 dollars a month for 5mb internet.

Choice:
Pros:

Great connections.
Pay as you go.
They prorate for late payment and no late fees.
Plug in the modem by a window and works great. (2 different locations with zero connection problems).
They offer refund if it does not work at your house.
Netflix works great.

Cons:
HD videos take time to load.
only can download 75gb of data a month before they throttle you (60% of usa has data limits so typical).
I cannot play online video games.

I asked BB.VI about that specifically before I switched back to them and they said no to throttling/caps.

BBVI. They have these crazy things such as "reliability", "appointments", and "customer service". For some, these are unacceptable foreign qualities, but I personally like them.
