Our CO is approx. 10 miles down the road, but I can actually see the remote box from our upstairs bedroom.
That said, the MUX is stuffed. REALLY stuffed. When I talked to the techs before Christmas I was told that upgrades should be happening now. The speed tonight is just terrible even though we have fiber optic to the box-I don't think Frontier appreciated just how hungry our area was for internet access. Right now I can't open a lot of sites because things just time out due to a choked, busy pipe.
