Every so often, we compare internet speeds. Here's ours:




I read an article a few weeks ago about Sebastopol, California. The folks there can get 1 gbps (!) speed for $70/mo. 100mbps for $40. This reasonably speedy connection costs us $62. I thinking of buying my own modem. Have any of you done that?
