Founded in 1999, DSL Extreme is an internet service provider that has accumulated thousands of customers in California. The company offers a wide range of options to best meet each customer's needs. Services include traditional internet, high-speed internet, and phone. DSL Extreme offers many packages, requires a one year contract, and no data caps.
There are certain pieces of equipment that a customer must have in order to obtain internet service from any provider such as a modem and/or router. Many companies capitalize on this need by charging customers for these components, whether it be in the form of an outright purchase or a monthly rental fee. DSL Extreme does not require its customers to pay for routers or modems. Instead, the company offers these pieces of equipment for free as part of a package. This helps to keep DSL Extreme's prices low and affordable.
DSL Extreme offers free professional installations to its customers. This means that a trained service technician will come set up all the equipment, and ensure that everything is running properly. This is somewhat uncommon in the industry; many companies either do not offer professional installations or charge an installation fee, which may be upwards of $200.
Both types of internet service offered by DSL Extreme (DSL and fiber-optic) are priced very reasonably in order to fit in with many budgets. DSL packages are priced as follows:
Few providers offer any internet services for less than $20 per month, so the fact that DSL Extreme has a package available under that price is pretty impressive.
DSL Extreme offers its customers two different types of networks to choose from: DSL and fiber-optic. DSL is becoming a somewhat outdated technology in the internet service industry, so download and upload speeds available through this type of network are sometimes not optimal. However, DSL Extreme's download speeds seem to be slower than industry average. Download and upload speeds for each plan are as follows:
DSL Extreme's price range is expansive starting at $17.95 per month and ending at $92.95 per month. The prices are exceptionally high, especially for such slow speeds. Many other companies in the industry offer up to 1 Gbps speeds and cost significantly less.
