Not all of the poles are owned by telcos...a great many of them are owned by power, others by cable operators. Everybody winds up renting space on other company's poles, so that's not a valid argument.
Subject: New Services and Money-Saving Tips from AceDSL!!!
We are excited to welcome the new school year with a number of new services
and initiatives. First of all, we would like to officially introduce
AceVoice - an affordable, high-quality Voice over IP service for residential
"Why go with AceVoice?" - The choice is clear. It gives you the same
quality and reliability that our business customers enjoy with AcePBX, our
business grade VoIP solution. Moreover, you, as an AceDSL customer, are
directly connected to us as your VoIP provider. That gives you an even
higher degree of reliability. And, all existing AceDSL subscribers can get
$5 off the already low rate of $29.95 for unlimited calling in the US and
"But don't I still have to pay Verizon for the phone line?" - Here comes
the best part... you no longer have to maintain your phone service with
Verizon in order to keep using AceDSL!
DO NOT RUSH TO CANCEL YOUR VERIZON SERVICE, just yet. The only way to
preserve your DSL is to port (transfer) your telephone number to Acecape.
Even if you have no use for your landline number, we can "park" your number
for free; or, you can use it with any one of the AceVoice plans. Our sales
and support representatives can guide you through this somewhat tricky but a
very rewarding process.
Finally, to complement our Broadband and VoIP offerings, we are excited to
announce that Acecape has become an authorized Dish Network reseller.
"Why order Dish through Ace?" - You get an instant $10 off your AceDSL
monthly fee! It will stay that way for as long as you maintain your Dish
Network subscription. That's a $120/year savings, which can certainly come
We are looking forward to hear from you and discuss these and other options.
You may either respond to this e-mail or call us at 877-223-3754 option 3.

It'll be the next best thing to having fiber.
Man, I'd love to do that.
tread carefully lest they break something.
You could download porn.
I did an FTP transfer from uncnsrd to a well-connected external host, and I got about 45KB/sec. So I think the new speed is good.
When we finalize the move to another small town (Mason) which has no
cable broadband, but does have a DSL service provided, (and I understand all the
factors that might come into play such as the local infrastructure of the phone lines
themselves) will I be able to expect as fast as (or maybe even better) connect speeds
than I currently get using cable?
Greetings from "The Mug & More" in beautiful, sweltering, downtown Mason. Pretty cool coffee shop for a small town. Even has wireless access, but I'm not gonna lug the G4 down here. We won't have our DSL for another few weeks. We're gonna go ahead and have Verizon come out and install it because we want some drops in rooms that don't currently have them. It's something that I have the wherewithall and knowhow to do but their installation fee up here is quite reasonable. Well, bye for now. I brought my swimming trunks with me so I'm headed over to the pool now.
