Your best bets are gonna be JEA in the city and charter out in the county. I got a friend in Medon and their is no internet service at his home, he has to get the at&t wireless, which is shit.

JEA is a "government" entity.

What does this mean?

It means that it does not have to pay the same taxes as Charter or any of the other internet/telephone/cable businesses have to pay.

What does this mean to you?

It means that yes, you can get a "better" price on services, but it also means that JEA is not "contributing" or as the liberals love to say, are not "paying their fair share".

Businesses that "compete" with JEA, honestly cannot. The cannot avoid paying the taxes that JEA does not have to pay. They cannot "juggle" their books to make one division pay for the losses of another division.

Even big, bad AT&T cannot compete against JEA in this respect. What to do?

For each person, you have to find the solution that works best for you.

Is price the only factor in your decision? Do you want a company that actively "supports" and "contributes" to the local community? Or do you mainly care about price (and I understand those that have to think of that first)?

But remember, if "competition" disappears due to an unfair business advantage (think Ford and the GM bailout), who really wins? Certainly not the taxpayer, or the consumer.

Just food for thought.

Whatever you do just DON'T get wisper. The wisper offices don't even use their own internet if that tells you anything.

Eh its an option, theyve been high in the past, and I'm not talking their 1 year promo deals.

I could be wrong though.

I have had Wisper for almost 2 years. The customer service was terrible in the beginning, but now it seems to be much better. I had the AT&T wireless card before I switched, and Wisper is much faster especially for the price. Where we are we can't get JEA or Charter. JEA was great when we lived in the city.
