WISP kills DSL I had DSL and barely could get 1 meg downloads with pings >500. I really got pissed and AT&T did everything they could to re-tune the line, but I just live in an old neighborhood. We aren't even slated for Uverse it is so bad.
My WISP tower is only a couple of miles away and I get 10/3 speeds with 20ms pings. It works no matter what. Even when the wind gets up, it is raining really hard, and my transceiver is swinging back and forth in the wind I still get the same speeds. With DSL a little bit of wind or rain and it went to crap.
DSL is old technology that should go the way of dial-up.
Oh, and my cost is $40/mo flat. No taxes, fees or commitments. It is run by a local business so my money stays local.
The house I bought can only get 1.5 meg DSL from Centurylink or some over priced plan from Comcast. I opted for the local home-brew WISP and get a deal similar to yours. I can run multiple Netflix streams and run VOIP and have had no issues. The service is rock solid. There are no caps or throttling, extra fees, contracts, or equipment to rent/buy. I plan on keeping with them for a long time.
The WISP I went with isn't even the only WISP in the area. It just happens to be the one with the best rates and best service.
