Hello Windstream tech, other customers:
speeds still typically "nose dive" in the evenings. here is the current result using speedtest.net...
ALSO: I've seen some cable/telephone line work (could be electrical utility, but doubt that) but this work is along highway 70 near Pearcy, Ark. some 15 to 20 miles away -- toward Hot Springs. I wonder if this is the work you are speaking of? Other than that, I've not seen any sign of work along cables, telephone lines, etc. nearby.
Thanks, for your interest.
