Hey all. I remember a post in here a few months back discussing cable vs. DSL. Well, I just moved to the San Jose area, and was wondering if anybody out here knew of a decent broadband setup. I'm looking to mostly game on it, but also move some big files when I get around to it. If anybody out there has some info about a company, you know, that didn't screw you over like, can you let me know? I'd prefer DSL over cable, but won't rule cable out. Thanks in adavnce.

If you can get cable from anyone other than AT&T, go for it. AT&T blocks port 21 and 80, limits you to 128K upload and they 'claim' 1.5M down, but that is a total load of crap.

Believe me, if I was not out in the boonies, DSL would be my broadband.

I used verizon in southern cal, and they were excellent....

Best of luck, let us know what you find....
