Re: response online support gave me

Same response they give everyone, for some of us for 3 years now. We are aware of a latency/over utilization problem in your area... Really you have been "aware" of it for three years when I first told you about it. They have changed their network statement two times since last year. Basically it now says we will adjust bandwidth to those who we see fit (ie whoever is paying the most for it and who would be more willing to leave if they had a problem and another choice). Windstream is now trying to get the state of Georgia to pass a bill that says if we service anyone in that census area with 3-6mbps the county can't set up a broadband network of more that 1.5mbps because if they did we would definitively not be able to screw those people over anymore because they would surely leave.

If you can't win with good ideas or service, pay the govt to rig it so you always win. Windstream's version of Gerrymandering. I posted an (there are many) article about them in GA here yesterday.
