Default help with changing my ISP

Let me start by saying that my internet connection is pure crap. I have been with my new ISP for 2 months now, and I'm not satisfied with the connection at all. I've been asking him to fix the problem but to no avail. I'm gonna wait till the month inscription ends and dump him if the connection stays the same.

However, in the meantime, I'm searching for other providers.

I've found a few distributors, and want ur opinion on which might be the best (stable, reliable, and fast)
- visp (www.visp.net.lb)
- fastnet (www.fastnetonline.com)
- ultranet (www.ultranetlb.com)
- globalproof (it gives internet to other providers and distributors, but don't know if it gives internet to customers)

I don't want to change my ISP, and find the next one to be just as bad as the one before, so any help is appreciated.


PS: why is the fastnet forum the most active one while the forums of the rest are ghost towns?

vISP or Fastnet are reliable, I guess Fastnet has a smaller limit on download bandwidth per day (500MB for normal accounts) but has been around for years and years.
vISP has a wide range of gaming servers and media to download from their machines.
Fastnet has a huge FTP made by the users, you can find virtually anything there, they also have a gaming server that is linked to vISP as a leaf (vISP is the main).
Ultranet isn't that good really.
Globalproof is the old name of vISP..

so which is better? vISP or fastnet

My demands:
- stable download (not 1 and 2 KB per average )
- reliable
- P2P (torrents mainly) ports opened
- good support department
- unlimited or at least 300-400 MB quota per day

I don't care much about network FTP and gaming servers.

What's GDS?
By the way, I don't have a fixed phone line anymore, so DSL is out of the equation I think, and their quotas blow IMO.

And is it true what u said about fastnet? if so, they're not that good. Also, on their forums, there seem to be lots of complaints. ya3ne one look at their forums wel wa7ad byehroub.

What is the price for a 128 Kbps connection or a 256 Kbps one? I checked the site and everything is in hundreds of dollars, even the monthly subscription. I guess these are the prices for providers. What about prices for customers?

I download a lot, so I need a connection that gives me a good stable download rate, and I want sites to open fast (not 10 and 15 minutes).
