    Angry $10.00 More

    I just received a letter from my isp informing me that my bill will increase ten dollars more a month.Thats a bit of a price jump if you ask me.:( Is this happening to anyone else?

    Yikes - that's a pretty big jump! Is this for high-speed Internet (cable, DSL) or for regular dial-up service?

    Welcome back to me

    Hi, all

    Am I impressed? Oooh, yeah!

    Jerry,
    I have AT&T.The only other large company around here that would have even a glimps of being competition would be verizon.But their network is DSL as far as i know.They used to be the more expensive of the two.

    Thanks Sean!

    I was worried about having to use "search" to find this thread and I looked at the new posts and found it right away! My new broadband connection is well beyond what they call "Awesome". I'll mention this thread to Steve....heck, he's all knowing and will see this anyway.
    Maybe we could "bump" this thread, or just the website address to keep it prominent. I'll bring it up in the mod's forum and see.

    here's another test closer to home

    lets hope this link works

    you need to click on "im not using adsl/my isp is not listed." That is when it works for me
