Does anyone know of any allterantive to mvtc ? there prices are high for what they offer and you must pay $40 a month for a land line to get dsl even if you dont need a land line.

Its a rip off and im fed up them, if you have a problem they send out cletus and jethro to work on your lines, they come stomping in your house wearing big muddy boots and look for any reason to not do the work. I had to fight with them to replace the broke modem that costs double what its worth.

Im just ranting because its all i can do, short of going without internet.

You have highlighted the Mountain View workforce community to a tee. The best reality of the workforce in Mountain View, Arkansas is the "Worst". It is a wonderful place to pass thru with your windows rolled up and just keep on rolling down the road.
The energy you described of Jethro and Cletus regarding their lack of respect, ignorance and laziness is fairly pervasive where you are located amongst many, not all, but most. Good luck in your depressing and frustrating stay there.

Yeah, there are alot of people and businesses in Mountain View that really need their "modems" "butted".

The folks who now own Mountain View Telephone Co.(that would be Yelcot Telephone from Yellville, NOT a local person) have recently purchased the Mountain View Cable TV (which was previously owned by IndCo out of Independence County, again NOT a local person).

I've lived in bigger places that Mountain View, and most times there are maybe 2 providers available in an area vs. the one in MV. So complaining about a 'monopoly' doesn't hold much water b/c it's like that everywhere really. You could always try to get an internet connection from your cell phone provider, but good luck w/ that b/c they don't build enough towers in this area. Why not complain about the AT&T/Verizon 'monopoly'?

People understand little of what they complain about.
