Sorry...we're still having trouble rolling out DSL.

Of course, the fact that the IPUC made us roll out DSL into neighborhoods where nobody could afford DSL, in the first place. We have to spend the money implementing DSL where people won't buy it, while the areas that are truly clamoring for it don't get wired up.

Dog: So, can I now get DSL? (Would be about time.)

Jack: Unfortunately, according to the database, it's not available for you yet. The funny thing about that is that it is available for Amy, if she wanted it.

S'not you my friend. Nobody provides DSL to where I'm at. I joined rr for a reason. :)

Same here. I'm on RoadRunner (now BrightHouse) because I'm 5 miles away from my telco switch... so no DSL for me for a LONNNG time!

I'm told I can get DSL. I've not tried yet. I should look at the offers and see if there is one that is better and cheaper than Cable. I only need a connection and a single IP. I don't need anything else.

I know I can get DSL, but I would prefer multiple IPs, and no PPPoE. Can't get that in my current affordable price range...even as a telco employee.

I'm soooo tempted to get DSL now. Comcast had "scheduled maintainence" that nobody bothered to to tell the customers about.

When was that? I know Per for a while had every night around Midnight where that would happen. I can't remember how long that went on for.

ok why change from cable to dsl? Since DSL is now available to me.
(I'll belive it when I see it. Ameritech told me it was available last year when I moved. I called after the move to set it up and they said no it is not available. So why did they try to sell it to me in the first place!) Sorry minor rant.

Well, that's a good question.

Cost: as I recall, you don't have cable TV, right? If not, many cable companies charge you $15/month for basic cable, anyhow, in order to get the cable modem service to you. DSL, using your already existing phone line, can cost around the same as the cable internet service, while saving you the cost of the basic cable if you don't already have it.

That's a major reason I've never seriously considered satellite dish service; I plan on keeping my cable modem service, since DSL won't be a viable option for me anytime soon. (DSL companies are FAMOUS for mailing out offers, then only after you go thru quite a bit of rigamarole do they finally figure out "whoops, we can't help you")

I meant satellite dish TV service instead of cable TV service. I really shouldn't post when I'm ill ;-P

I've thought about DSL, and my house is setup for a second line that only goes to my office, so I wouldn't have to mess with any filters. However as I figured it, with the Satellite dish plan I would like to have, and DSL service it would cost me just as much as Cable and Cable modem.

The DSL package I would prefer to have is either $45 or $100, and with Dynamic addresses instead of Static..Static is even more. I only need one Static not 5. *sigh*
