Holding... Holding... Holding...

Simple. But no. They make it as difficult as possible so they can rape you and milk you for every penny that they can get out of you. Not like the rate hike was anything there. They already overcharge for a shitty service. And then they have the audacity to send something in the mail to announce their DSL service that has been “coming soon” for 12 months that looks like an over night letter. Of course, the band handwriting font used on the “shipping label” was a dead give away.

Sorry. I already got cable modem. And they didn’t harass me. They were even EARLY to set it up. Now that’s service. And it’s cheaper than the DSL service for faster downloads. Hmm. Why on God’s green earth woudl I want to use such a shitty service like Earthlink?

It saddens me that Apple associates with these schmucks.

They have this annoying classical music loop too. I’ve now heard the same five string pieces at least 6 times. And they don’t even do a smooth transition at the end of the loop. Ah, there’s the start of pass number seven.

I bet if I call the number to sign up, I’ll be serviced immediately.


An hour on hold and STILL counting. Fuckers.

    VOLP? Do you mean VOIP or Voice over IP (internet protocol)?Which sicreve is better really depends upon which companies that have to you deal with and a ton of other factors such as:How far are you from the telephone central office (telco) in linear wire feet. This will not be as the crow flies , but rather as the wires run from the telco. If your home or office is located farther than 15,700 feet from the telco, your DSL speeds will be limited to 144Kbps, slow in the DSL realm. And if you're farther than 18,600 feet, DSL won't be an option.and DSL uses a dedicated digital circuit that doesn't travel through the analog switches typically associated with your copper phone wires. Unfortunately, some locations only have analog switches, which will wreak havoc with your DSL connection.and How many customers did the ISP sell their sicreve to? Many DSL and Cable ISPs oversell their bandwidth. There are several local DSL companies whose DSL sicreve just plain sucks because provide DSL sicreve to more people than their own bandwidth supports. The local cable company and several of the smaller DSL providers have nearly zero bandwidth at certain times of the day because they have too many customers trying to the sicreve simultaneously.With DSL you must maintain at least 1 POTS line into your home or office, which carries your telephone sicreve. You can use your DSL connection to set up additional telephone lines for the kids or home office, using VOIP. The POTS line allows you to run DSL over it, and your FAX machine simultaneously.On the other hand, there are plenty of online FAX vendors, and companies such as Vonage allow you to run a FAX over a VOIP connection.Whether you made the right decision depends on whether everything works as expected. But you've got a year to decide if something else would be better.

    it is possible, YESwhat you need to have is a stand alone DSL coennction or in technical term they call it DRY LOOPJust make sure of that. You can call earthlink just to make sure if their DSL will still work without the phone, since you said that your DSL andphone service is from two different companiesDon't worry as long as you have a stand alone dsl coennction after you double check it with earthlink, then your VOIP should work. And also please make sure that you have enough bandwidth because VOIP is very dependent on bandwidth. If you've got a high bandwidth for DSL then VOIP service wont be a problem for you

    Actually there are many problems with power over USB idea, i would just<a href="http://rwqpmznxo.com"> hhggliiht</a> some of them:1. Ethernet cable can provide power at longer distances than USB can.2. Ethernet cable is standardized and common in whole world, but there are many standards of USB and people are not agreed on one standard.3. Ethernet cable is cheaper than USB cable.4. Ethernet can offer high power than USB.5. Connector type is single in case of Ethernet and this not the case with USB.hope you will enjoy this, and keep commenting.
