    That is a bunch of crap! Qwest has the chance, but they're passing it up. If they can't do it, then that's their problem! They shouldn't try to say that the Seattle city government is doing anything wrong. Seattle is only trying to do something for the good of the city. :ninja:

    How are they?

    Anyway, Verizon is doing the same damn thing as Qwest... except in Michigan. They're just mad that they'll lose customers. If they don't want to lose customers, then they should provide better and/or less expensive service!
    Damn greedy, monopolistic telcos! :mad:

    it's actually pretty pricey for my blood. $40 bucks a month doesn't make me happy, but i think it's the only high-speed internet service for my area, so i don't really have a choice unless i get GayOL. : (

    Yeah, that's about the same as my internet, though we could get something cheaper... or maybe Earthlink will lower their price soon.
