Hi John

I'm on the standard Eastlink package and I regularly test at 15down 1up. 
It's been 5 years since I had Aliant and refuse to go back after having 
multiple "techs" tell me an issue I had with them was my computer and 
not their service. Hard to believe them when 5 different computers with 
multiple OS's all do the same thing. I guess if it works and you don't 
need to call for tech support and the price is right, should be okay. My 
folks have been on it for about 6 years (1.5meg package I think) and 
other then using PPPoE it seems stable enough for them.
