I hate dial up

Come home this evening to scroll the evening away, no i-net. Try and try again, nothing. So I try the back up system(dial up) yep it works at 26400. So I call the ISP for the wireless, them dumb fu*ks did not pay the electric bill for the tower. How stupid can you get.

I still hate dial up.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Re: I hate dial up

Hammer, are you nuts?! I hate DSL! After I move I'm going back to dial-up, because it is the tits!! I absolutely love watching a picture load one little line at a time - so entertaining! So I really don't understand where you're coming from here.

I don't think I'd tell my customers that.

He did not want to, he tried to tell me it was a power outage and I called bullshit, cause he said they would get it on in the morning and that was the fastest they could get it on. He finnally fessed up somewhat and said that they disconnected it in error which is still bullshit, but closer that the first lie. They do sometimes disconnect the power by mistake but after a phone call it's right back on, if they got the right meter, you are in the dark for the night.

We just rolled out 24Mbps (it ends up to be about 18Mbps). I am tossing Fiber in my house by year end! I will be connected at 100Mbps...but who knows how fast the Internet will be.
