I have had IBB 2 meg for a year now. It seriously sucked for most of the
year until I forced them to put me on another high sight.
I went from serious packet loss -> which affects games but more importantly
- VOIP. You simply cannot have VOIP with packet loss.
I sometimes had a connection of 1mbit (on a 2mb) but more often 35k to 65k.

service. Believe me I have tried to give them money, many, many, many times.
