After speaking to HUSAIN and asking to repeat what she said 10 times, I said this is my price for life, she said that is the name of the plan. What a crock of horse bowl movement . Guess I need to write in the memmo space on my check, MY 1 TIME PAYMENT AND LAST PAYMENT FOR LIFE. Could I get the FCC in on this one ???

Good one Dan! Price seems a little high for something that's just a bit faster than dial-up.

I pulled some strings with the Verizon engineers a few years ago and got them to run fiber to my local subscriber loop cabinet. I'm about a 10,000 feet copper run to that cabinet. It's very unlikely FIOS will every be available where I live. If available I would subscribe in an instant. My DSL price is "lifetime". Price stays the same if I don't make any service changes. It's been the same for 5+ years. Taxes on the service have gone up but not the basic rate.
A recent new service is wireless service. 768Kb Symmetrical $69/month (2 Year Term), $99 One Time Activation Fee (No Equipment or Installation Charges) It uses a 6 GHz RF link to a local cell tower. A small transceiver is mounted to the outside of your home. It must have line of sight to the cell tower. It's cheaper and faster than satellite Internet service.
