    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great speeds, good tech support, stable connections, fair price.
    Cons: It's cable and has limited up speeds.

    Summary: In my area the current zoom 500 line is running at just over 8MB/s down; that translates into download speeds maxing out at 1100Kb/s which is reasonably fast. If you're not happy dl'ing at a tad over one megabyte per second, then you better have ... read more
