Supposedly we can get DSL through Embarq at a half-decent speed, but our phone lines aren't nice clean modern phone lines--they're old phone lines, given to ranging from crackly to out completely in rainy spells, which I know lowers the speed (boy, do I know it on dial-up.) And I'm not sure we can *really* get it with Embarq. Some months back, they told me No, but now there's a salesperson who says Yes.
Moderate grump. I'd really like to have a nice fast broadband connection (who wouldn't?) And with no competition, I'm stuck with the one provider--no deals to be cut.
