    Talking I'm Back!

    Just got new twisted pair (ugh!!) in the street repaired and I am back on DSL again.

    Will send more when I get all the networks up and running after trying in vain to get it running on my side.

    It wasn't me or my stuff..they actually hit a main feed between me and the Verizon substation.

    Joe...That first sentence brought tears to my eyes. till I read the rest. PJ

    When I was younger I heard but didn't listen.
    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    Out of interest Joe, what are you paying for DSL there?

    Getting involved with twisted pairs sounds risky at best.
    Entropy is not what
    it used to be.

    Thanks for the note....I was going crazy with nothing working but the WinTV and my WMP10 files.

    I could FAX..but that wasn't any fun.

    Anyway: I pay about $14.95/mo with the Verizon Freedom Package (an extra $29.25/mo) which includes:

    1. Call Waiting
    2. Caller ID
    3. Call Blocking (selective...by me)
    4. Three-Way conference ability
    5. 10 Mail Boxes for voice mail
    6. Unlimited Long Distance to US, Canada, Mexico, Guam, Midway, Philippines, Hawaii, Alaska, Jamaica, Puerto Rico.
    7. Custom and ID distinctive ringtones
    8. Real Humans who speak English consumer services representatives


    The only reason why I get such a low rate ($49.90+ fed taxes and junk) is by combining the Freedom and the DSL packages together.

    I am currently getting about 4.9Mbps down - 1733Kbps up.

    They promise better speed in a while..they have me on a temporary link-up right now.

    Better speed? If I got that sort of speed from my ADSL connection I'd be really happy!
