Guess I can scratch NC off my list of possible states to relocate to someday :/

Why would you do that? Pretty soon 238% of the state will be covered in broadband!

Thank God I was able to tell TW to stick it over a year ago when my local phone company rolled out their 20mbit DLS in the area where I live. I laugh when I hear TW's TV ad saying their cable speeds are three times faster than DSL. I was paying almost 60.00 a month for their lousy "turbo" connection at 10mbits over a year ago, I'm sure it has went up even more since then. At least there are a few places in NC where TW has some competiton.

They are 3x faster than DSL. It's compared to the lowest tier if you read the fine print. But of course nobody does anymore. And when your DLS line that is older than my house rots you'll have no option but to move if you don't have Internet. Remember Copper telephone wiring is on average OVER 50 years old.

The votes of the state threw out the Democrats and replaced them with Republicans in both state Houses. The voters will get to decide if they like what they are doing or they throw the bums out. The Republican Party makes no bones about being for Big Business and small government so no voter can say they did not realize what they were voting for. Votes count.

Of course, that means the copper in my neighborhood must have been deployed four years before the tract was built here. And ignores the fact that some telcos do expend capital to maintain and upgrade the plant. No way U-verse (or ADSL 2+, for that matter) can work on rotting copper. AT&T installed a spanking new 100-pair F2 in our neighborhood just over a year ago. And that was about five years after SBD replaced the aging 50-pair 19 ga. copper with newer 50-pair 26 ga. copper.

My house was built in 2001, so I think my copper is still good for a while.
