Smokin' FAST Internet Connection


Well, it finally happened!

Our DSL provider (Frontier Communications) has switched my service to a NEW facility. This move (due to many outages) has increased my speed by over 5x compared to where it had been coming. I hope to have more consistent service and fewer outages.

Since I run a 24 hour weather station, it was imperative that I be able to upload data to the web all the time.

I appreciate all of the hard work of the technicians from Frontier.

Site is definitely loading a lot faster too. Great.

Congrats on your faster DSL speed! I'm about to move into a neighborhood with faster speeds as well. I'm really excited!

Although by this time next year you & I may be able to have speeds way faster than what we have now! I've recently started a corporation & am joining forces with other corporations to provide internet at speeds you'll never believe!

Thanks guys...almost 4 mbps is quite awesome! Nathan, I've heard of some crazy speeds..like 100 mbps in Minneapolis...not sure how many will pay the 150 bucks a month they are asking for it! :)
