Over on the RTC mailing list there is more discussion of Suddenlink’s problems. Apparently people in certain areas are experiencing intermittent service failures. Personally, while I haven’t had complete service failures, I have had several days in which email service disappeared for hours at a time. These problems bring in to sharper focus the lack of choice in broadband service. In many areas you can only get cable so there is no choice. And of course, plenty of folks can’t get either. But hey! it’s Spring on the North Coast. What are you doing inside in front of the computer, anyway?
