people who have netflix/hulu instead of cable..

We are finding we need faster internet for watching netflix/hulu. We have att and pay way too much for 3mbs download speed at best.
Trying to find other options....hopefully faster service for no more than what we are paying now.

Who do yall have for internet?

Also, does anyone use a pay as you go hotspot option?

Thanks mamas!!!

Hmm, we have 3mbs and have no problems with Netflix. We have Windstream phone and internet bundled for $50/month (plus taxes).

We have, ironically, comcast internet. We pay way too much for it, but I haven't had the time to call to get it lowered yet. We pay $60, but we were paying $40. Substantially less than when we had the cable bundle.

Re: people who have netflix/hulu instead of cable..

I have Charter and pay $35 for just internet, no cable or land line. I think it's more an issue of type of connection than speed. Sometimes you actually share your bandwidth with your neighbors and that really kills streaming.

We pay $30 for the lowest AT&T Uverse Internet. Works fine for Hulu and Netflix. The only lag we ever see is with the wireless when far away from the router. Especially with so many devices and computers connected to it wirelessly.

I would suggest upgrading your wireless router before considering changing your internet provider. We were having troubles streaming until we got a more powerful router. Now we can stream on 3 devices at once with no (or very little) noticeable effect. When ds logs on with his PS3 to game with friends THAT slows us way down.
