Qwest Informative - Qwest Internet Service, take your que from Qwest- take your time making your decision.
Qwest, like other internet providers, make promises they know they can't deliver without playing the "up to ___ Mbps" game. The key words here are "up to." What you actually get is based on where you live.
If you live in a new (less than 5 years old) urbanized area, then the chances of getting their maximum speed is a little better. However, I have yet to hear someone say they routinely get 7 Mbps. The older your community is, and the further it is from an urbanized area, the slower the speed - I live in the suburbs that was built some 40 years ago and the best sustained download speed is about 1 Mbps, and that's only from a website of a major corporation ( i.e. Microsoft Corp). On average I get about 700 Kbps, and on a rare occasions, say at 2 AM in the morning, I've gotten intermittent peak speeds of up to 1.4 Mbps . . . a far cry from the 7 Mbps.
And don't be fooled by the Fiber Optic claims - "IF" there is fiber optic in your area, it only exists from the "neighborhood terminal" to the internet. The cabling from your house to the neighborhood terminal is most likely the same old hardware installed when your house was built, and in some cases that terminal can be 1/3 of a mile from your house.
So, before you make the jump to any internet service provider, ask your neighbors; (1) who provides their internet service and (2) what kind of performance are they getting. I wish I had done that - I later found out that all my neighbors that had Qwest Internet got rid of it after a couple of months. The primary reason was slow internet performance and more importantly, poor customer service and those hard to read hidden fees to activate some of the "extra" services.
BTW, during my inquiries, I discovered if you happen to have an Apple Macintosh, Qwest customer support is totally ignorant about Mac's ... all they know is how to connect your Mac their service . . . the same pretty much goes for Comcast as well. And, all those extra "services" they advertise don't apply to Mac's.
