TDS is having big problems in some areas of Fannin county. I was paying for 15 meg and averaging 1.5 meg. They are having problems with their fiber optics. I called them and they lowered my bill 15.00 a month for 1 year. Test your speed at speedtest.net . If you are having problems call them for an adjustment. Maybe with lots of calls they will get their act together. I would switch to ETC but I'm to far out.

Media Guy, thanks for posting. Mine is running at 3.0 -- very slow! And that's when I have service. It seems to be down a lot lately. We replaced modem last week; time to call again and complain about the speed and down time!

It's a capacity issue.

Think of it like a cake. Someone takes a slice, then another, and another. Yet someone won't get a slice.

Basically, too many people are using the internet and not enough of it is available for others.

Things won't really improve until they replace all the copper wiring with fiber optic cable, which is VERY good stuff.

Sadly, according to the demograph both confirmed by TDS, and a friend of mine who works at the TDS office in Blue Ridge, we won't be seeing fiber optic cable for at least another two years.

Then again, I imagine if they got things done faster, or ahead of schedule, we'll see it sooner.

A fellow posted something last year around this time.

Also yeah, I'd swap to ETC, but they won't touch Epworth.
