Re: 100kps Download Speed - Nothing Can Be Done?

Well, today ended the saga of trying to get my DSL fixed. Basically I found out that a neighborhood about a 1/2 mile up the street was getting 12 meg service so I called and placed a ticket with Frontier to try and get hooked in. A very nice tech just called me back and said that basically it would be too expensive to hook me into that line. He did confirm that the current housing, switch area, CO, whatever you call it is about a mile from me and that it is extremely overcrowded right now. He said there is a plan to relieve the congestion there but couldn't give me a timeframe. Basically, there is nothing else AT ALL Frontier can/will do now.

My next battle ensues...here I come Comcast...you WILL service me!
