Re: [Telephone] Charter Telephone Serviceable Area My wife pays the bills but we get Charter phone/TV/internet for several months. At least this combined package was a better deal than SBC. Especially because it works while SBC DSL in my area is poor.
We've had several (six?) disruptions in phone service that I recall. Once during a nasty storm where we lost electric, too. There is a lot of road construction going on around my subdivision but I've never been told that was the reason for the outages. The outages last several hours when they occur so I don't consider it as reliable as SBC. SBC has only gone out a few times in the last 15 years!
