I've had Earthlink since I first got internet access 6 or so years ago. I guess I'm to lazy to change to anything else, but I've never had any problems with it in all these years. I also am to lazy to change email addys. I've grown attached to it since I've had the same one as long as I've had access.

www.dslextreme.com is what i use. it's a service that runs over SBC/PacBell lines, so it's really the same copper. but their customer service rocks and their website had the most information i needed to setup my wireless network at home.
i was a loyal earthlink customer for many years, but when the DSL prices dropped to $22 or so and earthlink couldn't come close (after 3 months that is) i changed. i did ask them why they were so expensive for DSL, they just said sorry... sigh.
for old die hard earthlink dial up customers, you can get a like a $10/mo account from them to keep your email addy AND a back up dial up service in the case your DSL (or other broadband) goes down. mine has had 2 long downtimes (a day each) in the last two years (yes, my fam and i were sad).
I was very happy with Earthlink, but when I moved they didn't offer service. I now use Cox Cable. So far so good.
I'd like to sing a song about the American Dream
About the way our American hearts beat way down in the bottoms of our chests
About that special feeling we get in the cockles of our hearts
Or maybe below the cockles
Maybe in the sub-cockle area
Maybe in the liver
Maybe in the kidneys
Maybe even in the colon

A residence doesn't need a T1, unless you are running a call center from your living room. Or perhaps you have outsourced your children and husband to India and need the extra bandwidth to communicate with them.
