Glad that you found the URL helpful. I didn't think about it from a potential retirement location standpoint. Good idea.
I have AT&T as my DSL provider. It's just a pretty basic connection, but if I don't experience the random dropouts, that's all I need for the price. I think about going to Comcast, but don't want the price creep up that happens with them. My DSL service has been steady at about $20/month for many years.
The final straw may be if I'm making a transaction and the connection drops, leaving me unsure if the transaction was processed or not. Luckily, that hasn't happened yet.
As a work around on bad days, I got a usb 56K modem hooked up for dial up (good old dialup) so at least I can check my email or posts like on here and wait it out
