AT&T Home (DSL), Dish Network or Wireless? Home(DSL) shouldn't have any
restrictions other then it might be a bad network. That kind of problems do
you see? Also ask AT&T if your using DSL where the central office is from
you. 18,000 feet is the MAX... Ask for a tech to come out for a line test.
Also it might be oversubscribed.
I looked for a central office map for your area and couldn't find one.

Do you have an updated:
DSL Modem (Check with AT&T first. Make and Model)
Router


If you go with cable. Make sure the modem can handle the speeds you are
buying. (I brought my own cable modem. I had to work with a list that my
ISP has.) The up speed should be over 10Mb. The down should be higher..

Now food for thought.. You can get a cheap Internet service package
from Spectrum
for testing.. Ask for month to month. If you like it. Go for it.
