So, I moved. Although my Clearwire worked as before, I decided to try cable, since it was available in my new location.
I called Optimum on a Wednesday, ordered InternetOnly service, paid by CC, and was up and running by Friday. I went for the basic 15/2 service, and was surprised that It clocked at 20/2 from day one.
I opted for the free self-install, but the tech came in and set up the modem (a Cisco2203C). It took all of about 20 minutes, most of that time was waiting for the cable to come to life.
I purchased the Belkin N600DB router and it works well with the modem and with my Macs and iPhones.
Sofar it's a screamer, very pleased.
UPDATE 13 May 2012
I updated my basic service to Boost Plus 50/8 service. The new modem arrived via Fedex in 5 days. I swapped out the modem, called Tech support and within 15 minutes the speed went to 50Mb+
Easy and no hassle upgrade.
