    It was a long time coming, this is the Official Blink Broadband Internet Topic.

    so what are your experiences with this terrible, buggy, laggy, unreliable, but cheap internet providing service?

    so far the people on the customer service line, know my voice and name by heart because of the amount of times i have to call in on a weekly basis to re-enable my failing internet connection. Its becoming annoying.

    what are your experiences?

    haha feel free, we need the feedback from Flow users and Greendot users as well, blink is terrible all around, but their price is great, although you do not get what you pay for.

    I need to switch soon although blink has brought me together with some great people, Garth the technician, melly the customer service rep, Christian the tech and Anita the tech support rep

    wonderful people!

    Was gonna do it but I say nah.

    First we had that dial up shiet through the Motorola RAZR with tstt (Google homepage used to take about 10 minutes to load)

    Then we moved to Greendot. Prices were cheaper and you got what you paid for but the time to load just the Google homepage was anywhere between 7-12 minutes.

    Things could have changed but although flow lapsing these days I'll stick with them

    man Google used to take me 10-15 minutes to load!! luckily I changed my DNS server and that helps LOADS, I used to get download speeds of 32KBps when I was lucky. Now I get around 50KBps not impressive to some people but I think it's fantastic!! my increases in speed makes me much happier but the internet had become less reliable! will post some speed tests soon

    Since 3 years ago i applied for blink Broadband and every time they said it was available in my area but they Blink never even called me back. I now use the Wimax from Blink works flawless. But still wishing to have a broadbank connection.

    This is like piper speeds. Check the Flow thread on tuner for speedtests you'd be amazed. To get those speeds I have to disable ssid broadcasting and use a MAC filter to only allow my devices. (about 4 laptop, 3 phones and 2 tablets)
