There are many internet provider. My internet provider is Charter.net. Another popular internet provider in this area is Knology. At first Charter did not have any competition then when knology came to the area Charter started giving us some lower plans and options. We have a few dial up connection here also. I have never used those. Have you ever used any of those internet connections they advertise on the television like People PC? Who is your internet provide? Are you satisfied with your internet provider.

I have Comcast, the speed is great but I keep having issues with my wireless network and the telephone (I also have comcast phone service), every time that someone is on the phone the wireless net cuts out. I have been trying to figure out a way to fix it, but have had no luck yet. Around here the main competition for comcast is verizon, but it is much slower, and more expensive.

I use Verizon for my laptop. They give nationwide service. They aren't perfect but I don't think any service is. But they are pretty reliable overall. Sometimes I wished it was a little faster but that could be more than just an internet issue actually, but again verizon is cool. Had People PC and worked pretty well also. If I'm correct I think they use to give 10 hours of dialup free per month, unsure if they still have that promotion.

I know that my internet provider is AT&T. I also use AOL service. My main service is AT&T though. What I have is not dial up though. I have the fast access DSL. It is not a bad service either. I also have the wireless service as well. No I have not tried People PC or that kind of thing.

Right now I am using Verizon DSL, and I am very happy with it I have in the past used others, a local ISP and even AOL. They were okay, but I really wanted DSL and waited a lot of years for Verizon to bring into my section of the city. I will not go back to any dial ups, that's for certain

Had to correct you here. I am using a 3g connection by celcom. The connection was a bit slow when I am in the gprs zone but other than that I am happy with it.

I am in India and there are many service providers like Airtel, BSNL, TATA, Reliance, Beam cable, Hathway, Sify and many more. When it comes to best service provider, it must be TATA. All these service providers charges four times of monthly bill as a installation fee. Some of them are now coming with free installation charges. I am using BSNL and it was the very cheap when compared to speed with others. But the main problem with my service provider is with their service. If I got a problem, I need to call at least 10 members to rectify my problem in 12 hours. If I just called the customer care, then my problem will never repaired. This is mainly because BSNL is the government company. So none of their employees feel their responsibility unless we gave a warning to complaint on them. This is the bad situation in our country with all the people who are working in government sector. Apart from this, I love my internet service provider as it was the cheapest and reliable service when compared with others. Unfortunately, I was unable to logon to the internet from last 18 hours as BSNL server facing difficulties and this problem was not only with mine, to the entire state. But the BSNL people rectified it in 18 hours.

People pc sucks!! I used it and a lot of times it would shut down and lose the connection, sometimes I wouldnt be able to use the internet for days. Another provider that sucks is fibernet!!! It just goes through quest and so it is slow and actually can cost more than if you go directly through quest. It would also sometimes lose the connection just like the people pc did. I have quest now and it is so much cheaper, faster and more reliable. Plus the customer service sucked bt with fibernet. Dont ever use it. I am very satisfied with my current provider. I have had it for about a year now and I havent had any problems so far.

My provider os cox. I used netquest before them. Netquest was a dial up and cox is not. I would never want to go to the dal-up again as t is too slow. I've gotten used to cox and how fast it is. I am happy with my provider and don't ever plan to switch.

Our internet provider is the cable company. We recently switched to the cable company from the phone company. So, far I am not to satisfied with the comapny. They told us one price when we signed up and then charged us a way higher price on our bill, so needless to say we were not happy.

here in the philippines, my internet provider is smartbroadband. well i am satisfied with the connection though there are times that it is too slow and i had encountered difficulty in connection by the way with all due respect, i want to correct your question. it should be what is your internet provider? not who is your internet provider? internet provider is not a person it is an organization or a company. it is a common noun pertains to an organization not a person so you have to use what instead of who. no offense meant just to correct your english usage. happy posting and be blessed.

Our internet provider is Time Warner. . .we've had their internet service since it was Adelphia so we don't have exactly high speed but its good enough for now. Its satisfactory though I would love to have the speed they show in the commercials sometimes so I don't get a horrible lag loading certain pages with a lot of flash or java in it.
