I was with Duo, and just like you I was not satisfied at all! I broke my contract, and went back to Satellite, and went through Vortex for my Internet! You don't have to have phone service to get Internet through Vortex, it's wireless! My bill is a whole Lot cheaper, and I like the service! It works great for me! Vortex is located in Jamestown, in the same building with American Cable!

It would be nice if companies would do some real advertising instead of on topix all the time. It's actually getting funny. There is not one thing wrong with Duo internet, had it for years, works good.

There is something wrong with Duo internet too. In fact, there's a couple of problems with it.

1. It's way too high. Much higher than internet service in areas with companies competing with each other for customers.

2. You shouldn't have to have a Duo County phone line to have their internet service. That's effectively holding their customers hostage with an un-needed phone line to have internet service. Most people now days have cell phones and don't want/need home phone lines anymore. Since Duo County's internet service comes thru on the cable TV there's no reason to force people to pay for an unwanted telephone line just to have internet service. And when you add the cost of the unwanted/un-needed telephone line to the monthly cost of their internet service and then compare that cost to other areas where competition is allowed you'll see just how badly Duo County Telephone is screwing you.

Does Vortex offer an unlimited package? If so, what's the monthly cost?

I have had horrible service with Duo County the last month. They don't even have a service tech available on the weekends. I called the number on a Friday evening when I came home and discovered that I had no internet or phone service and it was Tuesday before someone returned my call. Then two week later, same thing...Monday afternoon before anyone called. I want better service. My land line, which I do not need, and light DSL is over $70 a month and for that I get slow, crappy service and no support when needed. Vortex sounds like a better deal to me :)

Keeping our advertising budget low, allows us to keep customer cost down. Keep paying for those pretty trucks & vans with full wraps and don't forget the extravagant office they have. In tough economic times certain entities in our county, including our local government, havne't realized they must scale back. Don't you realize you pay for that stuff through higher prices, & taxes... Windchopper...

Will Vortex Wireless give me internet service only without me having to pay for some other service that I don't want like an un-needed telephone line or satellite TV service? Also, do they offer any kind of package deals on satellite and internet service if you buy both services from them? I might be interested in stand alone internet service from them and might also be interested in dropping my Duo County internet service and cable TV if they can give me similar TV programming and internet service cheaper than I'm getting it from Duo. Plus I could then drop the un-needed telephone line that Duo forces me to have to get internet service.

Duo county is much too expensive, and their internet speeds are slow compared to other areas. I want 10 mbs, but they're just now putting in fiber optic to run 8 mbs. So I guess in 10 years maybe we'll catch up to casey county.
