I don't believe you've got a choice. I pay $40 a month for 6mbit down
1mbit up. I've got FTTH, though, no copper between me an the internet.
Theoretically, the shorter the copper is, the more you can cram over it,
thanks to a lack of attenuation.

That said, i haven't had too many problems with ATT. I wish I could get
verizon's FTTH service 20mbit/20mbit, but they don't exist here,
otherwise ATT'd go out of bizness. Oh and so would Time Warner.

Anyways, It's a lesser of two evils thing.
