Re: Slow internet at night

And it gets worse as the copper lines age and aren't replaced. Copper phone lines are going the way of the dinosaurs.

Indeed. Which is why I dropped my landline. The carrier wasn't very keen on repairing stuff (mostly lightning damage and apparently squirrel damage). I even had to involve the SCC to get the carrier to actually show up to fix the phones.

By which I mean it (the service) was awful.  I wasn't awful, though I was pretty cranky.
ROFLMAO!!!

My frustration drives the dialup comment.
I think they ought to call when they say.  I bet you have other things to do besides sitting by the phone!  Stick around here and check tomorrow after 9 am EST when the Hughesnet folks get here.

Re: Slow internet at night

I've had a couple of problems over the years with my landline phone, both of them being static, but they fixed it pretty quickly.  I only get two bars here normally, so I'm glad I still have the landline.  Plus, as I've stated a few times before in other threads, the whole 911 emergency service thing.

Re: Slow internet at night

I totally agree with the whole 911 thing.  But I had just had it with the issues with the landline, and I realized I hadn't called 911 ever, so I took my chances. I wish there were some way to register cell phones with 911 or something, especially given that landline providers are not really taking good care of the copper lines.  I do have the sheriff's number on my contacts.

I'm old. Remember when things where shiny and new, phone lines, bridges, water lines....etc.
