Have you tried contacting them? The number is on your > bill every month. <rant> Yes, try calling them. You *might* get through. These days they seem to hang up on about 1 of 3 customers who call in. I've been back on their "High Speed Internet" for about 3 months now and it seems to be getting worse every day. They are either overselling, or this new wholly-owned network of theirs is built very wrong. </rant> Honestly though.. if you use your home 'Net connection for anything important, I'd look for an alternative. I routinely have 19ms to my next hop.. about 4 miles away. I happen to have Verona and Plainfield directly in front of me as well.. I think it's our area. cheers, -- Mike Sawicki fifi@HAX.ORG
