I am once again very angry about my 3MB service clocking out at .77, so I started a White House Petition. Okay sure it may not do anything, but who knows, I figure with the amount of anger thats on this forum directed at Windstream, maybe, just maybe something will get done.
In my case Im pissed off at Windstream because nine miles away from me, in Iowa, is a town with a local telephone company (Liberty Communication), they service about 7,000 people, in two communities and the local rural area. Liberty Communications is providing its customers in West Liberty and West Branch, Iowa with 10MB fiber optic for $60 a month (you can get 20MB for $130/month); they also provide consistent 8mb DSL service to rural customers that live 3-5 miles outside of town for $70. Yet Windstream with its hundreds of millions of dollars and customer base of hundreds of thousands is not able to provide me, and numerous others on this forum with constant 3MB DSL?
Sorry Windstream I call BS on that one, because I know that four miles away, down a gravel road and across a creek that some friends of mine are laughing at my .77MB DSL while enjoying 8MB speeds. So anyway, I dont know if it will do any good and dont know if anyone will actually sign it, but hell, it cant hurt, so heres the White House petition:
