Borklog: One entry

4 February 2003

The latest in the Alltel saga. Our ISDN "service" is still flaky. Yesterday we got our second call from the DSL group asking if our problems were resolved, (and twice we said "We don't have DSL. We have ISDN. It's still sucking"). The satellite installer came today and is currently setting things up. While he was getting things installed, two Alltel vans showed up. Apparently we've had DSL available in the area since *May*, but nobody we've called in the intervening months has said it's available. So we're really pissed at having paid the ISDN extortion fee (2-3 times the DSL rate) for really lousy "service". Since we've already shelled out for the satellite stuff, we'll most likely keep that for the long term.
