Ugh.. unfortunately windstream is my local provider. I tried to use their DSL for a few weeks, it was constantly up and down and the technicians could never trace down the issue, inside or outside of the house. I gave up and went back to cable. I might have to pay more for comcast without the TV part, but at least I relatively reliable internet and much faster up/down speeds.

Windstream is also the ISP that has been hijacking websurfing and search results to its own end.

To try and profit more of its customers, Windstream routinely has hijacked its customers web traffic and redirecting it. Glad to see Dish Network is slumming with its corporate partners.
fun!!

Because they screwed up some DNS records and fixed it a day later? I'm not going to worry about that. I'm more worried about the quality of their broadband service.
