Submission + - What's the Best Broadband ISP? (

jcatcw writes: According to Computerworld's reader survey of broadband providers, 58% of respondents use cable and 38% use DSL. Included in the DSL numbers are those who use fiber-optic FiOS connections. Despite the hype, VoIP isn't exactly skyrocketing with broadband customers; only 27% of you are using it. The biggest shock: For all the grumbling, and for all of the complaints lodged against broadband ISPs on message boards and blogs across the Internet, broadband providers generally do a good job. Furthermore, reliability of our broadband connections is also good. But one thing is very clear: Speed rules. Verizon FiOS ranked first: "Upload and download tested speeds are faster than ISP claims, " said one Computerworld reader. Another added, "Little or no downtime." Second place goes to Cox Communications. Comcast came in last.
