      I just signed off of one server, for exactly that problem, among others.  My new system is MailChimp, which has a free service,

      Or like mine, unlimited size or number for #30 bucks a month.  Check it out.

      Does anyone have AT&T for their Internet? And does it run unbearably slow? Like 2 hours to download iTunes, etc.?

        We, here on Sargent Place and Court, suffer from a painfully inconsistent signal, drop-outs in the middle of downloads, requiring one to start again. That is the most exasperating feature of the digital world, as well as being informed that we are 640 feet outside the strong signal capability zone. It's tough to live in rural Echo Park.
        Apparently, we'll just have to wait for the fiber-optic cable to be put into action to improve our signal, with no sure time or date for that to happen!!!!

        Enjoy your modern, digital world.

          It really does depend on where you live in the neighborhood. Folks that are not too far from Elysian Heights Elementary enjoy very hi and consistent bandwidth

            consistent bandwidth because there is a fiber optic cable that was run

                  We have AT&T DSL, and we're pretty dissatisfied with it.  The speed we get is positively 20th century, too slow to stream any video other than the really low rez stuff.  And it stalls constantly.  Streaming even of audio just halts for many seconds at a time.  And the modem is unreliable -- it drops the signal and needs user intervention way more often than it should.  All in all, unacceptable.  It's only inertia that's keeping us from moving to the 21st century and switching to cable (that, and the fact that Time Warner never impressed us as a company when it was our cable TV provider).  But AT&T refuses to modernize its service in the heart of Los Angeles, so I guess people are going to be voting with their feet.
