Don’t take my internet away from me!

I’m getting more and more annoyed about this DSL thing. People are telling me that this could be a semi-permanent problem, as in they may not be able to hook up our net for weeks or months or longer. That makes no sense to me, since I only moved four blocks and I still live on one of the most major streets in the heart of my city as you can get. Please, feed my nasty mood some more. If this is going to be a problem for longer than a week, then tell me, so I can go find a provider that will actually be able to provide me with service. That’s the idea, you see… the acronym stands for Internet Service Provider. Fuck, if you can’t provide me with service, and you can’t do anything for me in the interim except charge my accound for service that I’m not receiving, then you can all go to hell in a handbasket.

By the way, did I mention that I was very angry about this?

    Yeah, I’d say you have good reason to be angry.

    I was all looking forward to getting my DSL connection when Mindspring’s contractor (Covad) informed me that they couldn’t do it. I’m damned if I’ll pay $50 a month for 144K while others are getting 1.5M for the same price. So okay, what about cable? Nope. MediaOne is in a pissing contest over open access with the County so they are refusing to install Roadrunner in any County residences until the courts clear it up.
