Why in the fuck is it that the Paragould, AR internet service sucks this much ass?? Advertised rate of 2Mb download speed and this is what I get? For the same price I am tempted to get DSL from AT&T at a rate of 6Mb download. Anyone else have DSL with AT&T? Opinions, comments?

Rant over....down from the soapbox.

I know a few people with DSL and they're close enough to the CO to get 6mbs down and love it. I am too far out to get DSL so I'm stuck with PLWC.

There are certain parts in pgld that AT&T is not offered so u have to use PLWC as Internet. But when I called out there because the Internet was down the secretary told me that PLWC uses AT&T and suddenlink and that they were down. But what they won't tell me is why I can't get AT&T at my house. Right now I am paying almost $40.00 for Internet when if I had AT&T I would only pay half price. What a rip off. I know they have to make a buck but at least give me my money's worth.

I realize that the internet is not guaranteed to have 100% uptime, however, the situation I have had lately is the fact that it is ridiculously slow....damn near 56k at times. I think I may check into the at&t dsl elite package. It seems I am eligible to get it at my current location.

And that is exactly what I was talking about in the first post. I once called PLWC about this and they gave me a url to test the speed and ping. The speed/ping is going to be faster directly to the ISP I told them. They ran a check of my line and said they saw nothing wrong....idiots.

I do know that if you are disabled they give you a discount. My friends dad is disabled due to back problems and he gets a discount. FYI

Look at the snap from speedtest.net
I'm paying 60 bucks a month for their "business" class internet, and this is the bullshit I get. This is out-effing-rageous. I don't understand how the hell they can get away with this blantant extortion for shitty service like this. It's pathetic that Delaplaine, a town with less that 1/10 the population of Paragould, can get almost 3x better internet. Asshole scam artists.

Looks you you get the same shitty speeds I do with the 2Mb package.

Wouldn't do any good as you would more than likely be told that the speeds are not guaranteed. However, the speeds that we get are nowhere close to their 'advertised' speeds either. PLWC needs some competition.

Another thread has this subject as well but I still feel the powa to post!

Business edition.

Had it for right at 25 days.

My average: 200kbps!!

Their response: "DUhhh We show you to be good on our end..." Thing was, I had my modem unplugged. THEY ALSO LIE TO YOU... F'n IDIOTS!! Plus, even if I HAD left it plugged in when I called, all that stupid test does is see if the modem is PLUGGED IN.. there's no way in he11 that they can tell with that test if the modem is spitting out signal. Morons.

Actually they do have the utilities to check out everything from there as far as signal goes. You would be surprised at what they can pull from your modem back at the office. I do wish they could have some competition in town though as far as cable, and internet go because the shit is terrible. I can't hardly do anything 95% of the time. Sadly that will never happen though because they are a power company also, and they own every single power pole in town so the competitions cable can't run on their poles :(

Is anyone else having trouble with their internet going out for a few minutes? Hate streaming something and stops right in the middle. Wished DSL was offered at my house. Stuck with grnco for now.
