Can someone recommend a cheap DSL company with good service?

by charmedlife417 / June 10, 2011 2:32 AM PDT

Hi, I recently separated from Verizon. I live in Los Angeles. Does anybody out there know of a low-cost provider of basic DSL service? I am trying to stay below $20 a month. I am currently trying DSL EXTREME, but am not happy.

Also, do ANY companies have phone support in the U.S. anymore? I am not prejudiced, but it is really hard to talk to support in India or the Phillipines. It takes so long!

Thank You!

For 20 bucks a month.

I'm going with no. And even at that price they can't give support at that rate.

Let's try this. Would you pay for support in a "pay as you go" scenario?

That is, will consumers opt for a "DLS is this much" and if you need support, that's extra?

This way the folk that don't need support get the lowest prices and don't subsidize support.
