So you might seen me mention on my Twitter feed this week (and in past weeks) that Verizon DSL service has suddenly become quite useless inside my house. While there's one local Verizon repairman who's sympathetic to my cause, my complaints have, for the most part, fallen on deaf ears. I'm sure Verizon would love to offer me FiOS, expect that there's no timetable at all for FiOS rollout here in Durham, North Carolina.
I would leave Verizon tomorrow, as I'm out of contract, but my only other option is Time Warner Cable, which is more expensive, and their apparent lack of interest in fixing a malfunctioning junction box behind my house is the reason that I switched to Verizon in the first place. So I have two options for high-speed Internet access at my house, and neither of them really work properly. So what do I do now? Seriously, if anyone out there has suggestions, post a comment here, because I'm starting to miss having an Internet connection I can rely on.
