Oh don't get me started. I have ATT DSL......the same 3Mb/s ATT DSL that I have had since 2003. Thats right, they have not made anything faster available to us in 9 years. That's it, my only high speed option. If I lived a quarter mile south I could have COX with 18Mb/s for the same price and they offer 28Mb/s! Cox won't cross the county line so I'm stuck in internet hell.
I can relate to your situation. My daughter's family finally got Comcast last year. It had been available in their neighbohood for years... on the other side of the street! CC wouldn't serve them because they had no buried lines on their side of the street. Finally, CC must have discovered the technology of direct burial, because now they have it. What a stinkin' monopoly.
But enough. I fear we are hijacking this thread.
