Jeez, what a can of worms! But I appreciate your input. It's great to know what is going on, even if it is not the best of news. That ISP sounds that what my ISP use to be like. Until a bunch of us locals went to the parent company and the CEO signed up for DSL as a "secret shopper". After a week of not getting connected, the CEO cleaned house and service has been wonderful (mostly) since then. In many parts of the country, ISP choices for broadband are limited. My parents in rural North Dakota have only one choice. Their local Phone Utility. In suburban Alaska, I have two choices. My phone utility and the local cable company. Fortunately both are pretty reliable. thanks Tim
