When I was working from home (maybe ten hours actually at the office each month) I had a 100Mb connection with Comcast. Loved tele-commuting, but will never use that company again.I've tested it multiple times, it has always hit at least 800Mb on upload. This really helps with a lot of the remote work I do.
But being semi-retired, I've become much more patient, don't download movies or anything huge so my exciting 3Mb with CenturyLink is actually adequate. Heck of a lot better than dial-up . The only issue is with sites that have a ton of pop-up ads and videos, but I just stop visiting them, life goes on. Sometimes I actually contact the companies in the pop-ups saying that just from the annoyance factor I'll never do business with them. Some ads have vanished, not taking credit for it, but you never know.
Oddly our local paper is the worst, but they did get rid of what I called "sliders". If your cursor just came near it, an entire ad would sweep across the screen. Had to move the cursor very carefully to not touch the "danger zone".
A bit faster would be nice, but CenturyLink just says "you're on the list" of areas to be upgraded. No time-line, could be years.
