  • Broadband Downtime

    I was on Cable for Broadband for about 2 years, and suffered intermittent problems for the entire time, and I won't even discuss DSL when I used it.
    I went to Verizon Broadband over a year ago, and it has been perfect. No Down time, works anywhere I can get a signal, (even at the model flying field), and for only $10 more per month, It has been a real godsend.

      Seriously, if there was a support group or rape counseling for former
      Earthlink DSL customers, I'd join.
