I finally after all these years have good internet speed.. woohoo!!
I live in a small town in Missouri and for the longest time was only able to get 1.5 mbps internet speed. (well that is what i was told) I had tried to get the faster speeds a few times and was told I could but it never happened. (they did manage to raise the price of our phone/internet plan for nothing though) When we got our bill this month they had raised the price again another $10 so we called in and finally got in contact with someone that knew what they were doing. She told me that there was never a work order made to get me the faster speed before but that I could get it. She also seen that we were grandfathered into a cheaper plan with unlimited long distance and was screwed out of that too. Well she managed to get us back onto the cheaper plan and got me 10 mbps internet too!! (yes we still use a landline.. hehe)
I am now streaming youtube/netflix in HD 1080p and it is wonderful. I know this is probably nothing new for most of you but for me it has been a long time coming. (I know there are some really fast internet speeds out there but for me 10 mbps is an amazing upgrade)
