Moving to AF.. which ISP

And just to clarify in case anyone is interested:

All AF Broadband providers ARE selling the same internet connection.

It is not allowed to use your own internet connection on the network at this time. If it were we would have hooked in our 2Gbps fiber connection to it a long time ago.

The AF broadband network is a Municipal run network meaning that at this moment they are not allowed to sell their internet directly to the consumer.

So there are about six providers that resell it including us (Rapidwave) and others like AFConnect (independent of AF City).

Since we are all selling the same connection with the same bandwidth (through fibernet) you can pick any one of the providers that you like and get the same stuff. 

The only differentiating factor is the service. 
Some providers are one man band; which means their pricing is usually cheaper. So if you go with them, they give you the same internet, but may be hard to get a hold of sometimes is all.

You can price out all of the providers by going to afcity.net (the cities page for their broadband system).

The good thing about the system is in most areas it is currently providing customers about 17Mbps up and down. It varies greatly, but if you go to dslreports.com and check speeds for 84003 you'll see what I'm talking about.

Interesting.. how does the AF system work with different providers? 
Does the customer have a choice of providers, or is it that AFConnect
internally uses more than one provider for it's bandwidth but that is
transparent to the customer?
