Default Internet provider

I am pretty spoiled here in Texas with a good friend that owns a internet service provider that is Microwave right to the AT&T fiber optic line. I get hooked up at 1.5mps at the slow end. Most of the time its around 3.5mps. My question is....who in the Golden area has the best reliable fast connection? I want to have service when I come up at Xmas.

Not sure about Golden, but here in Denver I have a dedicated high speed DSL line through Qwest. I think I'm getting 5-7mps. I have 5 static IP's and a small network of computers on it. It's really stable and speedy.

I've been getting 5+ Mbps with Comcast at home. I have Qwest DSL at my office -- not quite as speedy, but still pretty rockin'.

I've been very pleased with qwest dsl. I have a dedicated 1.5 line. I think it's only been down once in 2+ years. I was gun shy of high speed cable because when I had it in Va. service and availability was terrible. It was always down, speeds went from amazingly fast to utterly slow in seconds but i didn't have any other option for high speed at the time. I also wanted a dedicated line. I know hackers regularly hang out in the cable pipes looking for vulnerability.

There is also the 8m comcast... http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/foru...hlight=comcast
