+ 2 Votes The basic package (one they usually call the value package)... SmartAceW0LF April 4, 2013 at 12:46am PST is in fact NOT. Usually the basic package is broken down to such miserable speed it is by far a better option to go ahead and bite the bullet to their best. This would especially be true for one desiring to stream movies from the Internet. The breakdown usually follows a pattern like this. For XX dollars we will provide our fastest at 30MB. For 10 dollars less we will provide 3MB and for half the price of the full monte we will provide you with 750k. Rarely, is this scenario much different. Though in fairness, ATT provides a little better ration per subscription rate. This is most notable with regard to their U-Verse offerings. Equally in fairness, in this region, U-Verse connectivity and support has turned what used to be a flawless network into the biggest headache one can imagine.
