Any decent internet in NYC?

I have been struggling with decent internet (shaky downloads. skipping videos, itunes partial downloads, and miserable upload speeds) in NYC for a while now.

Today, after several failed attempts at uploading a relatively small file to youtube, I finally broke.

It took every ounce of humanity to stop myself from throwing the modem across the room. My face is red. Im embarrassed at how frustrated I am. 

I have since ventured to a local cafe, a vietnamese sandwich shop and another cafe to upload this damn file. All have failed as these public wifi spots reset the modem every hour or so.

I feel like it is 1994 and I am patiently waiting for the AOL page to load from the dial-up modem. Delaware doesn’t have this problem. Comcast upload speeds are splendid. Thusly, Delaware > NYC. Can we allow this to happen NYC?

So, in a desperate attempt for an answer, I am begging for help. Can anyone recommend an internet service provider or a location in NYC where the upload limit is decent?

For all the techies out there, I have tried multiple PC’s/MAC’s in several people’s homes and I get the same result. 

I need to get these files to a client. It’s 2012 afterall, let’s get our sh@t together.

Any suggestions NY?

EDIT: I have given up on any hope for this evenings technology journey - I am shifting gears and diving into a culinary adventure. Challenge: to make better Banana Pudding than Magnolia Bakery

After seeing this video, I am now committed to “tap into the power" and use "the net" (also a great Sandra Bullock film). I’m such a technogeek with a spreadsheet.

Thanks to Mom’s on the Net, I feel liberated and I surf the net for everything. I have so much time now. Thanks MOTN!
