As I've b-----d and moaned about before, I'm stuck on a dialup connection because of the crappy ass cable company in this area. The part that pisses me off is Time Warner's lines run within a mile past my house and serve most of the town, except this particular subdivision...
To add insult to injury, the phone lines suck in the area and the absolute best I can connect at is 31.2 (usually 28.8 or 26.6)
(I've tried other ISPs too just in case it was a problem at their end, but always get the same connection regardless of which dialup ISP I use.
Is there ANYTHING I can do? Either some deregulation law I can cite to get TW allowed into the area? Hell, I'd even settle for at least a real 56k connection, any regulations requiring that phone line quality be suitable for a faster connection?
