Digis is by far the worst ISP I've ever used. I finally cancelled them
after having my connection totally die several times a day for minutes
to hours at a time over a period of several months. They were great the
first few months, but after that, they were horrible, and their customer
service reps were purposely vague and misleading; all they wanted to do
was get me off the phone. They'd promise to send a tech out, and never
would follow through. Oh, and if you go over your bandwidth quota, they
don't tell you, they just bill you through the nose silently.
I hope your experience is better, but if it's not too late to pull out,
you might want to consider it.
