2 Most recently since my desktop is all jacked up I have been using the tablet to assess the interweb. Oh joy what fun, not. First, the thing can only go so fast with a 1 GHz processor, #2, I’m on wifi with max speeds of 54 Mbps on the router so it says but we all know that’s a lie, and #3, my modem keeps recycling. I had finally had enough of that and called them when I couldn’t get it back online no matter how many times I unplugged the blasted thing. You want to know what they told me? My modem is dead/dying. Bull, because I actually thought of that and bought a brand new one which did the same thing. I ended up sitting on the phone with them for a good half hour to an hour while they “diagnosed” the problem. I wanted to stop waiting and get going but they were my hold up. They finally got it “fixed” and gee, the thing doesn’t recycle anymore either. I swear I need other options to choose from but I am almost stuck with these guys because the other only option in my area is bad, bad, bad.

I keep looking for how close Charter is to me but they aren’t quite there yet. For what I am paying now a month I could get their up to 5 Mbps plan and still come out ahead. I should probably go to Charter’s Facebook page and bombard them with posts whining that they need to expand faster but that might be rude lol
