ISP's Ranked; AT&T Mediocre

Computerworld ran a survey of its readers to determine "who's the best" ISP provider. Strictly broadband, inclusive of cable offerings. They got 1200 or so responses.

Here's the breakdown:

There's little doubt as to the best U.S. broadband ISP, according to our readers -- Verizon FiOS wins by a wide margin. Overall, its users rated it at 4.4 out of 5, far better than the five other ISPs, which are bunched together in their ratings, with Cox Communications at a 3.9 rating, Time Warner at 3.8, AT&T and Verizon DSL tied at 3.7, and Comcast, the worst-rated ISP of all, at a lowly 3.5.

I know some folks stuck with Comcast, and they would wholeheartedly agree. As an SBC/ATT user, the mid-range rank for that provider doesn't surprise me at all.

Time Warner works just fine in New Berlin. Charter (who owns them, TW?), they on the other hand are shady up in Madison.
