Stupid MCI Neighborhood and Damn Earthlink

Well I don't have DSL service at home anymore. Stupid MCI Neighborhood discontinued their DSL service for a reason that they cannot explain.
They left me high and dry with no suggestions of other DSL companies..fuckers

So Woo HOO!! A mailer from Earthlink came that was spouting off all kinds of cheap phone and DSL service combined and I immediately signed up online.

I waited, each day becoming more and more excited about having the internet again....
and waited
and waited

Then I called them and asked them - WTF??? They said: "Your order was cancelled because you do not have phone service with the local "major" phone company"
Whateva!!!!!
I called back a couple of days later and they said...We''l give you DSL and phone service with us if you agree to change your phone number
Whateva!!!!!
I called the local phone monopoly and they wanted a $100 Deposit!!!! (fuck that)
I called Earthlink back the same day for yet another round of bullshit: "Your current phone service provider will not release your phone number, so we can't transfer your number"
SO damn WHATEVA!!!!!
I called my current phone service provider (MCI Neighborhood) only to hear: " We are NOT holding your number hostage, we have NO CLUE what you are talking about"

I swear to god...

So the moral of this story is:
Get dial up and suffer...oh wait! No dial-up for you Linka72...more phone line/phone number BULLSHIT!!!

I'm going to go drink extremely heavily right now.

Dial Up is really going to suck

I fell your pain. In Australia we have what you call 'capped ADSL/Broadband/Cable plnas'. This effectively means you have to buy an allowance (mine is 20GB per month). Once it is used up you're 'capped' to dial-up speeds.

Life sucks too much sometimes.

Hey Linka I live about an hour north of Atlanta & found on-line (after muuuuuchhhhh research) a company called ACN. They gave me phone service & DSL for 62 dollars a month. Apparently they can contract it through comcast cable, who ironically enough would not provide it to me directly. I think their web address was simply acn.com. They are based out of Ohio. Love the DSL & the price. Bellsouth, MCI, At&T can all kiss my a$$.
