High-Speed Internet Comes to East Mountain


We broke down and bought satellite internet access. They installed it today and we're all ecstatice. (You're talking about a family of four that shared a single dial-up connection for the six years.) So after four years of waiting for Alltel, then Windstream to follow through on their promise to have DSL to our road "within a year" we finally got the satellite.
Yep, got it installed and called Windstream and told them to disconnect our two phone lines and shut off our internet access ASAP. They were most displeased. Tough. We've been crawling along to their tune for too many years. They lost us as a customer.
(Oh, and it feels good.)
