Left in Alabama ...has great post today on "FAST INTERNET SERVICES"

I applaud Left In Alabama for posting this information.  I AM SICK of not being able to get fast internet.  AT&T said all the "ports" are filled up in this area.  Do I think that someone will drop their DSL?   I think not.  SO...Why should I have to choose to pay high rates with Hughes.net....or other higher priced FAST INTERNET services.????I shouldn't have to.  I SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET AT&T DSL and at the lower price that everyone else who has it, pays.  COME ON AT&T...with the age of technology...YOU CAN DO BETTER.  I want DSL!!!!!

I hope something can be done to bring 'fast' internet to smaller towns in Alabama. If we can get fast internet here on the Plateau of Tennessee, you should be able to get it in Alabama.

Hi Deb, My hubby is enjoying your blog also. I hope you get faster internet. That is ridiculous that you can't get AT&T to come up with something--as big as that company is.

Good Luck!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Thank you both for visiting, Betsy and George! You are one fantastic and interesting couple :) Maybe I can get you to put in a good word with AT&T for me to get fast internet??? lol...I know that there are some mickey mouse Internet Providers out there, and some that really charge high fees. I don't want that. I pay over $100.00 per month to AT&T now, so it looks like they could accomodate me. I really don't understand the "port" question? Do you know what that means? It seems like as high tech as America is now...I COULD GET FAST INTERNET with one of the largest phone companies in America. MAKES NO SENSE lol....Maybe I should organize a protest???

over a hundred bucks, whoa! i say go ahead and give them a run for their money, ms. dab!

I pay them that for 2 phones, unlimited long distance, etc. HOWEVER...I should be getting DSL in that price as well. with their BUNDLE PLAN. It's not fair that people up and down the road from me have it, and I can't get it.
