So my ISP is pissing me off...

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

OK. i have been using a verzion EV-DO card for my desktop and xbox for quite some time now. it has given me little satisfaction, but hey, its alot better than damned dial up (which i used to have) So heres the deal. i go through this whole big thing with a local dsl company because im sick and tired of having 100+ ping and slow as crap upload speeds. They told me i was A QUARTER OF A MILE out of reach. i was like WTF!??! Cant make that much of a difference in speeds! After several hors on the phone i got to talk with one of the head persons. He told me that there was no way that i could get any other form of high speed internet besides satellite, and he gave me a few choices of that. I told him that satellite is going to give me the same preformance as i have now. I had a feeling that this guy did not know much of what he was talking about so i decided to post here for once. Do you guys think there is any way for me to get dsl or any type of landline high speed internet?? (by the way, im the last one on our street and the only one without cable, we use satellite.) What can i do about this?
