DSL Woes

DSL: Darn Stupid Line is a Wired article dealing with people's problems getting DSL lines installed into their homes and ISPs' problems keeping them running. Thanks Stomped for the link.

Of course, where I live CenturyTel would need to replace the switch with a digital one before we could even start to think about getting DSL. Since I have a hard time getting a phone line half the time because they are too incompetent to add more circuits to our current switch, I think I will have high-speed Internet access right about the time the Sun super-novas and engulfs the Earth. I have heard rumors that ISDN service may be available here within the year, but I have full confidence they will find a way to screw that up too. Not that I am bitter about regional telcos or anything . . .
