I have had DSL for many years like many others at home. . .
First there was IBS from NJ. . .5 static ips, sdsl 384k. . .but never
used more than one ip, since i was working all the time (at work) and
went through a period in the dotcom era when i didn't even have an
operational computer at home. . .I doubt I'm unique for that time. . .I
lived at work, and sometimes slept at home. My firm at the time had
brought IBS public. . .
IBS sold its dialup accounts to Earthlink, and dropped its dsl. . .So I
attempted to do Earthlink. I think that's around 2000. Verizon told
Earthlink I'm too far from the co, which is ironic, since in my younger
days I could probably hit the co with a rock.
Next day I got a dsl sales call from Verizon. . .and have been a
miserable adsl basic package customer ever since. For the first few
years, my line was down at least 3 weeks each year. Infamously bad
copper in my neighborhood.
No major problems for the past year. . .but now I also have the local
foreman's cell phone number. <g>
I may look at Cyberonic. . .which does 1.6 down and 768k up with a
static ip for $39 a mo. . .$10 more I think for 5 more static ips.
Bad service on the phone, I've heard, but generally no problems.
Then again, I may stick to my mindnumming Verizon as well.
