Super awesome when it works. I pay 40 some odd/month [and it includes rental of a modem+router - the base is 39], which is brain-warpingly good. Less awesome are the transient episodes of low speed, high latency, and packet loss that I cannot seem to isolate and pin down.

The transient issue is bad enough that I would consider switching, but there's nobody else to switch to, unless I dump cable for DSL. I'd be paying the same amount for less than half the speed, and I've had even more variable speed issues with DSL [Very raely during the entire time that I had DSL did I ever get the speed I was provisioned for], so that's a non-starter at this point. Oddly, I think Hughesnet may be an option at my apartment complex. I don't know who'd actually be stupid enough to do that though.

Edit: We were finalists for Google Fiber at one point, but we never got it. Now, they seem to have no intention of moving into our area. Considering how much of a hardon area governments seem to have about all this "Silicon Prairie" bullshit, you'd think they'd be on the ball.
