Re: Why can't Fairpoint provide steady service? I complained to NH Public Utilities and they contacted Fairpoint. I got a call from someone in Concord and she gave me a story about the computers having mixed up the signals,etc. She wanted to know if I had my 1.5 Mbps speed again and checked in with me 36 hours later. I had my 1.5 for that period. After she called I am here at lunch just 3 hrs later and lost the speed to 0.36. Go figure.
Like I said they are pulling fast ones over us and many are stuck with this crap. The government should demand them to get there act together somehow. It's to a point that Broadband (high speed) is a necessity in life as a phone is.
I'd like to switch to Wireless hotspot but they say it is too expensive still. No cable here so they have me but good.
