Our Guide To High Speed Internet Service
This website is designed to help consumers compare various types of broadband Internet connections, including cable, DSL, fiber optics, satellite and wireless. Our purpose is to help you comparison shop for broadband Internet providers in your area and then to serve as a single point of contact for you to sign up for the broadband ISP of your choice.

It's me! I serve as the webmaster and main ISP reviewer for this guide. Most of the reviews and comparisons you will find on this site were written by me.
My involvement in the Internet industry began in 1995 as a franchisee selling basic dial-up Internet. I was later hired as an employee of GTE InterNetworking, the dial-up ISP division of GTE, which eventually became Verizon. In 2000, I moved on to join the much more interesting field of wireless communications.
I have been a part of the broadband industry since it's explosive growth in the 90's. I hope that my understanding of broadband Internet connections and the companies that provide such services will make it easier for you to find plans that fit your needs.
