Sadly, there is none. You get either Windstream, CTS, or dial up. Windstream is garbage, yes, but CTS is FAR worse. And you don't want dial up.

Up here in Somerset they have Time Warner and it kills everything down there, but I have no idea if they have plans to expand south.

I have CTS at work my office and it works perfectly. If I could get it at my house, I would drop my windstream internet and phone!

CTS has grossly oversold their bandwidth and their technical support is currently almost a week behind. The very nature of their service (previous generation wireless microwave) puts it miles behind Windstream in performance, even if they were not oversold.
The only situations where CTS could potentially be better for you than Windstream is if they can provide you service when you cannot get Windstream. If this applies to you, go for it. If not, Windstream, however terrible, is the better choice until CTS drops some significant money on infrastructure.

So windstream said they upgraded there equipment and there was no time table on when it will be complete. until then we would be getting latency drops.

CTS might be good but they are not a gaming internet. We 3 are in our 20s. We want to be able to come home from work or school and shoot things online to escape from the boring life that is wayne county.

When Ms B talked to them about it, they said it was not a gaming internet.

I wish we could get TWC here. I would love to be able to shoot the zombie before it even has time to reanimate.

Windstream, I am paying for 12mb and if I'm lucky I get 1-2mb. I hope it is fixed soon. I really don't like the trouble with going threw cutting off internet with the. I know if I did, Ms B would cut off part of me when I sleep and then strange the rest of me with a phone cord.

Windstream, for my sake fix yourself, I dont want strangled in my sleep by a netflix deprived roommate or her little brother.

Thanks to all for the info. I had windstream techs. at my house today..they replaced a frayed wire across the road, figure it's been like that for only 3 years lol. Anyway, they did a speed test, only getting a little over 1.7 and paying for 3. Was told it was in the London office and they CAN fix it but don't have the equipment to do so...go figure!! Guess I'll still be "sick of it"

TWC bought out NewWave Communications. I don't know if you all have them down there yet or not. But from what I hear, people are not getting what they're paying for through them either. One issue I've heard is that tthere it's something wrong with pay per view and not being able to access it? And audio 'lags' have been brought up on some online forums.
(Video not matching up with the audio. Seems that there are delays with the audio transmission)...
