I agree, I'm just north of Seattle, in Lake Forest Park. With CL DSL I'm
stuck at 5MB/800K. Honestly, the 800K uplink is the real killer, 5MB down
isn't awful, unless I'M trying to download an ISO or something -- in which
case I can usually wait until I get to work (The UW has some fat pipes).
The service is quite relable -- I think the Arris modem then sent me is shit,
but that's a different issue.
Talking to some line techs in the neighborhood and confirming with CL
customer service, CL fiber is supposedly coming to my neighborhood in the
next 6 months. I'm not sure I believe it.
The one really interesting thing about DSL, which has me wondering if I should
keep it is that a fixed IP only costs like an extra $2/month. With any newer
offering, (fiber/cable) I've seen that go as high as $20/month
