in reply to My home internet connection is

Though I'm being charged for DSL. My current ISP offered me DSL, came out and did a modification to my phone service, then backed out due to my location. Time to slap them around.

    Ack! I'm lame. I didn't even say I was using a modem. I must get coffee.

    Hmmm... does that ISP happen to have the fitting initials BS? I was *supposed* to have DSL as of yesterday but I didn't. When I called over a month ago to BS to order my home phone service they said I could get DSL, and I would have my install package (I would install my line filter and modem myself) on Nov 7. Well, I was all excited when I got home last night, only to find I had received nothing from BS (aside from the BS they gave me on the phone). So, I call and ask "WHAZZZUP?!?!?" only to find the sales rep was an idiot and no DSL in my area until June 2001. Although, I do see them laying cables along my road, so it may be sooner. So, as of monday I will be getting a cable modem. Or, I can just stay at work 24/7 and enjoy my OC3.

    Cheers,
    KM

      My boss has both a regular ADSL line and a fixed service "T1ish" SDSL line. At various times BS has punched a real T1 on _HALF_ of his two wires, cut his neighborhood wires completely, punched another DSL customer on _HALF_ his wires and disconnected his home telco for 8 hours when he called about poor connect speeds on his ADSL.

      He's REAL happy with BS. Meanwhile, my BS ADSL has been trouble free for months. I did have to teach the guy how to install the software they "require" to be installed. Of course it bombed because I had a NEWER version of Netscape already loaded. Very sad.
