(3) Wed May 19 2010 22:07 Better Broadband?: Is there an ISP in New York that gives any advantage (price, performance, service, privacy) over the big oligopolists? I hear Speakeasy used to be good, but then they were acquired by Best Buy, which seems like the single most efficient way to ruin something. Is it still good? Any other options? Astroturfers welcome!
Speakeasy was acquired by Best Buy?! News to me, and sad news if so. They've done well by us here in San Diego and I was probably going to stick with them when we move up to Mountain View next month, just to not have to give Comcast money.

It's entirely possible that, even in the clutches of Best Buy, Speakeasy is still better than Comcast.
