Move out of SF and get cable.
Unless you live in that one SF neighborhood that is
wired for cable broadband.
DSL was a nightmare when I had it in the city. Down
at least 1 day every week. I was in the outer sunset,
so was pretty far away from the hub I suppose, but
they kept defaulting to the "inside wiring" of the
building, and how my 60 cents a month on the phone
bill didn't apply to DSL inside wiring, only phone.
what a crock, it's the same wires!
