Earthlink broadband is a resale of an incumbents last mile. So if the
last mile with DSL or cable is ok, it comes down to would you rather
do business with Earthlink, your cable company, or your phone company
as a broadband provider. I've dealt with Earthlink, TimeWarner, and
Bellsouth here in Raleigh NC and would take EL any day of the week and
pay a premium to do so compared to the other choices.
