So far I’ve spent four hours on the phone with Verizon Tech support. The problem has been escalated again to main office engineers but it has not yet been fixed.

I endorse Think Progress

Think = direct one’s mind toward someone or something; use one’s mind actively to form connected ideas.

Progress = advance or development toward a better, more complete, or more modern condition.

Think Progress is a News Blog that I read. Perhaps you may like it too. Here are some of the current headlines:

Slow Down Fixed

Surprise, surprise. The replacement Verizon wireless router/modem came and did not fix the slow speed internet problem. It turns out that Verizon had the answer all the time. It was their network configuration causing the slow speed internet problem. After the Verizon employee fixed the Verizon network configuration I am finally now getting the speed for which I’ve been paying. Oh yes, one other thing, Verizon has granted me an $11 rebate off next months billing.
