Seems to be getting better in the Trackrock Gap area in the past couple of months- faster and more stable. Previously it had been absolutely abominable from Windstream.

Also try: speedtest.windstream.net

what my internet service is like with the recent upgrade...it sucks! Still! In fact...it is worse, if you can believe that. Windstream has gotten slower in the past few weeks and we are a spit from 129, just south of town.

We are happy to announce a discount for sub-stamdard service to all of our customers in 'spit distance'. We appreciate your $42M tax dollars, and my kids just love their new jet skis; almost as much as the BRMEMC board members love their 'do nothing' paychecks' during their retirement. You folks are great!

You do realize that this article is dealing with the fiber-optic network, not DSL provided over analog phone lines.

And.....your point?

The NGN fiber optic line will run right on 515, through Young Harris/YHC. All internet will be connected to it eventually.

No more DSL analog, or climbing up the pole to ask Mabel to connect you.

Doesn't matter one bit whether some of your traffic is traveling on fiber, unless you've got fiber to the house the speed you experience will still be controlled by DSL over analog lines. What do you think the extent of fiber coverage is in Union County, if you're on a tributary of a main county road don't hold your breathe waiting for fiber availability.
