The Great Switch

Yesterday was the start of what I am calling "The Great Switch". I have been a Comcast (@home, attbi, then Comcast) broadband customer for a few years. Minus the constant name changing I have been fairly satisfied with the service. But that said, SBC had a great deal running, on their DSL service, which would save me about $15 a month so I decided it was worth a try.

The install went very smoothly until I went to install my new router. That should of been the easy part. After all was said and done I finally went with my old router and it worked great.

I'll give it a couple of days to make sure it's acceptable and then I will call and cancel Comcast and live with my new broadband choice.

Oh boy, what a great start! I got home yesterday to find that the new DSL modem is dead. SBC is sending out a new modem. Hopefully it will get here quickly so I can complete my testing.

I am still waiting for the replacment modem. I called yesterday (Friday) and they said it would be sent out that day, yet I reported the problem on Wednesday. Anyway UPS shows that it should be delivered on Monday.

The replacement modem arrived yesterday. I hooked it up last night and now I will have a few days to test out the new connection.
