Ok, here goes...
I ordered BA DSL a while back and contrary to most peoples story my
service has been just fine (knock on wood).
Thing is, now that competitors are in my CO and I now have a choice in
whose DSL service to use I am stuck with the question of if it is
worth it or not.
I have received emails from Telocity and a couple others offering
service at better price points or speeds than BA is providing. I
called Telocity to check and while DSLReports.com lists them as
offering 512/256 and 1500/256, the rep told me that they are really
offering 640/128-256 depending on distance. (Shouldn't be an issue for
me since I'm only 6,500 ft from my CO) They are offering a no install
fee, free modem, no contract, static IP, etc for $49/month which seems
pretty good, but in talking with the Telocity rep he said that they
are using BA's DSLAMs and hardware, does anyone know if this is true?
Frankly for me, BA has been pretty good, but I would really like to
get a bit more upstream performance and the static IP. (I hate the
whole PPPoE thing. It's an unnecessary hoop to have to jump through
and there are better ways to handle provisioning, but thats another
Anyone got any words of advice or comparisons between BA and Telocity
