Aggravated with Verizon Internet

I am so fed up with Verizon DSL Internet services right now that I am seriously thinking of just cutting the net off for good. Here where I live there is a monopoly when it comes to services. The county only allows one cable and one dsl service and both pretty much stink. Verizon stinks because of their poor performance during the evening hours. My net is slower than a 56k dial up modem in the evening. I can't play games or watch videos without some type of stupid lag and high ping. I am only a mile and half away from there building.

Now if I switched to comcast i would be paying double the price of what I am now once there little promotion deal is over. So here it is dang if you do and dang if you don't. They have you either way you go. Too bad I don't live close enough to get Charter cable internet. Like I said it is a monopoly here and the county is getting a huge kickback from the companies to keep it that way.

I am glad we dont have that problem. We dont have a lot f choices but I do have an unlimited data use wireless. Since the end of November when I switched to them it has only acted crappy once and we had freezing rain that day. So that could have been the problem

They will not fix anything in my area. I became so aggravated last night because of the high latency issue and finding someone else on my same DSL which they refused to help me with, I actually cussed at them which I rarely ever do. I try to be nice but I have had it with a sorry service.
