[DSL] New here

Hello forum.

I'm a new here and recently frontier tech told me he be posting a sign next month on the box just outside my drive way that DSL will be here after they done rolling out fiber optic. really fiber optic? I was kind of shock.. Anyways I can finally get rid of nightmare hughesnet!

So I was wondering does frontier still carry standalone modems? I would hate for them to replace my Linksys N3000 since it already have gigabyte ports and wireless N.

They provide a combo modem/router that you can place in bridge mode for DSL to use with your current router. I have no idea what they provide for use with fiber. Did he say they were installing fiber to the house or are they installing fiber to a new remote for DSL?

Probably just remote area. also my line from the house been replace like 5/6 years ago.

I guess bridge mode it is. hopefully their modem/router supports that.

Edit: Also tech told me last summer they working on it and I would get 6 mbps down but I hear frontier not too long ago that they upgrade the packages?

I am pleased with Frontier 1.5 Mbps DSL a year after escaping from Wildblue. I remain hopeful of Frontier's continued investment in our Island infrastructure - oh for fiber.

I share the same story as Doug Huffman - Wildblue escapee, was on Alltel/Verizon unlimited cell for two years, and now have Frontier DSL.

As to FIOS, are they referring to fiber to the home or to the box? We have it to our MUX on the street, but techs let me know I'll never see bonded because we're a remote location. Boooo.

I did, however, get a white Frontier postcard in the mail today. Maybe they're sick of me nagging to up my speeds and are going to do it just to shut me up?
