That's what happens when you live at the far reaches of the earth. We are lucky to have 1 fiber line here and it may be another 15 years before we get another one. DANC has to kiss a lot more political ass to pull it off. We do need a back feed and switch from Albany. It's not going to happen this decade. It's going to cost in upwards of a billion dollars. Not everyone is even afforded a primary line up here.
yea right

Nobody is getting anything until the deal with National Grid is worked out over easements for pole usage.

Things won't get rough but it will probably be the end of 14.95 DSL service. The customer will take it in the shorts to satisfy the unions demands.

Time Warner doesn't offer DSL. Verizon does.
