Re: [Availability] Previous owners had dsl I can't get it going
I had a similar problem as you. Put an offer in on a house, no cable company, um oooookk ah DSL yes service is available. Great, no ports now that I go to move in. Had to wait about 6 months or so before a port opened up. The reps told me the same thing, get a phone line and it will help you get service, yeah right.
So I kept checking online about 50 times a day By going to att.com and clicking on shop-DSL Internet without a phone line. And finally 6 months later I checked and it gives me option to sign up, no one ever called me even though I signed up for the phone like the rep said. So I signed into my account and sure enough it let me order. Prayed that it wouldn't get canceled thankfully it did not.
So I feel your pain, keep checking every day online, much easier than calling in. I still called but only like once a week. I had Clear in my area so it wasn't that bad, didn't have to use 3G internet but Clear only has like a couple of towers in Cleveland active I believe so probably not much help for you. Try Verizon Home Fusion LTE if it's available in your area. Better than nothing while you wait.
