So I'm looking for net options I hear bad things about Windstream, but I also live near the motel/police station which is practically next to the building in terms of wires and shit.

So I thought maybe it'd work better for me than my friends out in the country. I want to game and hughes 10GB data limit is BS.

I thought about going CTS because even though it's only 3MB opposed to Windstreams 12MB, people have told me they only get about 512K max/5kbs download speeds so I figure a solid 3MB would be best if Windsream is seriously only going to provide me with 5% of what I'm paying for.

But my friends may just be ignorant on how internet actually works. I also don't believe in Time Werner cables claims of 50MB speed. As they claim you have to have their 30MB package to even game/stream and I was gaming with a low latency while on a 512k connection when CTS was wireless.

also the sites everyone used on Time Werner claiming they got 60-120MB of bandwidth When I checked mine on the site on my Hughes 12MB package it claimed I had 78MB download speed while Toast.net claimed I had 3.mb

So anyway, whats my options here, and what's your personal experiences? Is Windstream really that bad. Or does it generally give you 1-2MB just like other places that claim to give you 12MB does

I am paying for 6 mb and I'm barely getting 4 mb. I was paying for 12 and barely got 7. It sucks but CTS said that there internet was not available in my area and if there internet is as fast as the computer they had setup in there office saying try our high speed internet on this computer, they need to feed there hamsters a but more or stick about 5 or 6 more potato's in there power department.
