speed very slow. but you have to be careful how many devices are hooked up. Plus they will try to sell you more speed but your location dictates how much speed you can actually get. Frontier is probably putting all their effort into FIOS and not DSL. Landlines are not being maintained with the same vigor as before.

I have been using spectrum for almost five years without problems. It has good speed but price goes up after promo period ends. There are issues with initial set-up (not easy), returning modem is super difficult if you move.
