I just got "migrated" to road runner from comcast.net. I had to do the
usual reboot of modems and routers and immediately lost 90%+ of my internet
speed and access to giganews, comcasts outsourced nntp server. NOT happy,
called road runner, busy signal, sent message, no response (okay, automated
response just came in) yet. I've checked dslreports.com and found LOTS of
unhappy campers there. VERY poor service reported over there.
I think I need an alternative, dsl is probably out, I'm about 24,000 feet
from the CO. I'm thinking of going with dish network and wonder if anybody
has any comments on that? It's high, the platinum service is $80.00 for 1.5
Mbs, pretty slow compared to what I'm used to.
I may bail out altogether. This is pretty frustrating.
