This must be what DSL stands for, yes? "Definition of Stress Limits. I have yet to fully install it and incredibly, am enduring nothing but problems. First Verizon says it will be "activated" and ready to install on the 30th. I then get a call yesterday to "go ahead and install it, it's activated." So of course, believingly I do. IT DOES NOT WORK. And when I uninstall it to try and regain my dinosaur dial-up, I have no dial-tone. Gone. In the Twilight Zone. By jerry-rigging the phone, I'm able to call Verizon and tell them the troubles, they say "it was a mistake, wait till the 30th." Okay, I can live with that. So I mistakenly thought.
This morning I get a recorded call AGAIN from Verizon saying "go ahead, it's activated, install your DSL". Yeah right. This time I call Verizon back and ask if that's a bona fide call. Once again, they tell me of their "mistake" and to "just ignore everything we say and wait until the 30th." I'd like to ignore alot more than that.
My question: Is DSL worth it once it's up and running? Better still, does anyone have it up and running? Does it work fine, all the time? All I hear are complaints. I can't afford cable, and DSL is only $15 a month with no payment to AOL. Sounds reasonable, but not at the expense of my online sanity, which when gone, affects my entire outlook just as it does most of you. So. Should I venture into the stress of DSL or can anyone say anything nice about it? I thank you.
