My punishment of Windstream will soon be over!!

A local Cable Company has deployed FTTH PON Network in the areas around the lake that is only served by Windstream with the help of Broadband Stimulus funds since Windstream isnt considered broadband due to the low upload. I have an install date of 12/12/2013 for 30Mb/30Mb service for only $3 more then my 12Mb/.7Mb service from Windstream.

Even though Windstream did finally add capacity and fix the issues with my DSLAM being oversold they jerked me around for way to long and honestly even if the speed wasn't so great id still be jumping ship.

Unfortunately I still have to deal with Windstream's suckage and outagas at most of our Stations but hopeffully that will soon be over aswell.

Which cable company if you don't mind me asking? I'm still waiting on Windstream to fix my issue which has been going on for nearly 2 years now and would switch carriers in a minute if I had a choice. Charter's 100mbps plan is available a mere 2 miles away and I'm stuck with 3mbps service that turns into this every night. »www.speedtest.net/my-result/i/703474598

Think of me while you enjoy literally 200x the speed I'm "enjoying" right now. I'd also guess that your latency won't be routinely in the half-second to two-second range. Fun times.

Do you think that company will bring that service over to the next county in jones co. I would be willing to pay $100 a month to get better service that what Windstream isn't offering.

Right now they are focused on the Baldwin/Putnam/Hancock County Lake areas, they are using Broadband Stimulus Funds which means they have to stick to using those funds in certain areas right now.
