I would have stayed with DSL as a family member receives a substantial 
discount on residential packages........ BUT....... port blocking, and 
spotty service, PLUS outsourcing tech support overseas really turned me 
off.  Not to mention the business packages which pretty much the straw 
that broke the camels back started at $299. month.  thats just complete 
insanity, and I made sure they were fully aware of there shortcomings 
when I switched to TW.  10 meg, 50 bucks a month, no restrictions.
