I’ve ordered DSL from AT&T. Four months of fighting with Cablevision to get things working has gotten me nothing except wasted time and frustration. The Internet service they provide is amazing when it works, but I’d rather have decent all the time than great when I don’t need it. Here’s hoping the DSL works out.
Update: I have no convictions. I’m still getting DSL as a backup, but talking to the line office got my hopes up again. The guy there is nice, and he really is trying. Apparently the issues that caused my line to drop out all weekend were unrelated, but had a similar set of symptoms (“the signature of this one is totally different”). It’s apparently hitting the whole neighborhood now too. Squee!
