reply to EPS If I had it my way I would love to see at&t get out of the rural areas to. I have at&t service were I live and most of the time I cant even use my dialup with them, takes 15 minutes just to get my home page up. If you are not going to get upgraded with Verizon what makes you think you will ever get upgraded with at&t out in rural parts? Verizon and at&t will never upgrade rural area's unless they get paid to do it. Might as well get taken over from someone else and not wait as long.
