I had RCN ( http://www.rcn.com ) in Philadelphia. They were pretty good
about periodically upgrading speeds for customers. I've only been gone
a year and boy have they upgraded. Residential users can now get 20/2
Mbps/sec. When I lived there I was getting 10M/800K and the performance
was consistently very good.
Internet options in the Triangle have mostly been pretty poor from what
I've been able to find.
That said, I'm house hunting right now. Are there any ISP's in the
Triangle offering substantially faster services than TWC?
