My understanding is that it took the FCC to force the phone companies to turn loose of DSL and allow all ISPs to provide DSL service. I pay my phone company for a “high speed” DSL line of 3M/640k, but I never get that. Just ran the test and got 1633k Down and 537k Up.
I get almost daily ads from Qwest that I can get much higher speeds if I change to fiberoptic. However my ISP says the only way I can get fiberoptic service is to switch my web site and email addresses to Qwest and give up the ISP I have had for years. I will not do that.
It is time for the FCC to force the phone companies to turn loose of fiberoptic so all ISPs can offer that service.
