XO NYC 10Mbps 1105/mo (3 yr) Proposal 10/07 router 110/month
Saddle River Day School XO New Jersey 1.5Mbps 400.59/month (3 year - expired - now on month-to-month) Actual 07/04 the bandwidth is shared up/down and is sectioned into voice/data, so our data line does not perform at 1.5Mbps. Generally very unhappy with service. I call the service center and they call Verizon (who actually owns the copper and run). Planning on switching to someone who owns their own lines, instead of a re-packager.
