We use Verizon fios and it's pricey (I think we pay upwards of $100/mo, but we have a house phone line too) but the speed is great and the reliability is top-notch. Don't think I've had an outage in the 4+ years we've used Verizon.

Before them we used Comcast and they were terrible. Several outages, customer service would do dick all to compensate for the trouble. And they were almost as expensive.

I believe it's about $60 a month and nominally 12 Mbps, though actual speed is usually a lot lower.

It's a wireless ISP. Not cellular, not satellite, but long-range WiFi. We connect to a transmitter on top of the local Farmer's Co-op about 4 miles away.

Viking Broadband, $100/month for 64 Mbps. Actual speed is between 40-60 Mbps down and 3-7 Mbps up.

I'm paying about 86$ for 400Mb/s Spectrum internet with about 24Mb/s upload. (It would be 20$ less if I were paying for 100Mb/s internet.) The thing that annoys me is we used to have Time Warner cable and its slower internet and paid more for it and when Spectrum came in they never changed the higher price until I decided to drop some premium channels and got myself a better cable modem to get the higher minimum speeds they were advertising. I had thought my speed was being limited by the rather old modem I had from time warner, but it turned out that even with the new faster modem I wasn't going to get that speed (100Mb/s) while on that old expensive time warner plan. (that spectrum never bothered to tell me I could change and get cheaper cable and internet.) So now I pay about 185$ for cable and internet rather then about 100$ more. I've ended up getting faster internet and cable and paying much less for it, all the while trying to avoid having to talk to anyone on the phone to change it. I did still have to talk on the phone in the end, but I was able to keep my temper and aggravation in check. (I'm rather annoyed with myself the it took so long after Spectrums take over for me to get to the point of finally doing something to change my speed and cable, such is my intense aversion to talking on the phone that I was willing to pay too much a month for crap 24Mb/s internet for nearly two years after they took over.
Spectrum internet seems to be working well so far for me in the two or three months I've been using it. Qos being turned on the router being the biggest thing to slow down data going through it. (Off now) It seems Qos will divided up your bandwidth to limit speeds depending on what kind of data the router thinks your using on the bandwidth. Streaming services being limited to the speeds your likely to need for them. So any device a router with Qos turned on could have its bandwidth limited more then you might want to be. i.e. if your router thinks your ps4 only needs streaming video speeds then that is all you'll get which could slow your download speeds. Once my routers Qos setting was turned off I got much better download speeds for the ps4.
