    CenturyLink strung fiber in my neighborhood. $85 and no data cap.


    12 years last March. Now that I think about it, I figured I would have been called for a 10 year anniversary gift. I got a year of free Showtime/Movie Channel at five years.

    In areas where the Telco s ran Fiber or FTTH Its amazing and the best residential broadband service available .

    From what I have read over the years they (the telco s ) all did the same and only upgraded parts of the city (where they provide service) .

    Where I live my max is DSL 3.0 but if u cross a main intersection that area has had FTTH since 2006 .

    So my central office was skipped but others have FTTH.

    I wish telcos expanded FTTH everywhere that way it would be cable seeing a massive subscriber drop and not Telco (due to non upgraded DSL areas ) . But that's just me

    Got married in September of '94 and were moving in to a new house when we got back from our honeymoon. But since it was a new street, they had not yet finished building out the cable infrastructure. It was supposed to have been done, but wasn't. So while we were gone my dad had a local TV shop come install D* (old school reference for those who remember) in our new house. Good thing since it took another couple of months for cable to finally get there.

    So it will be 24 years this September. Account number is under 300K.

    Funny thing, I just celebrated my 20 years as well this week. However, my "Celebration" did not go as planned. I called to suspend my service for the Summer (This is the second year I have done so) and I was told the only way to do this was to pay my balance in full. Now, my due date wasn't for another three weeks, so I offered to pay the prorated amount through the date of suspension. Nope. I had to overpay and keep a credit on my account until I turned it back on. So, after bickering with a couple people about this, I said cancel. They cancelled my account without so much as asking why or if there was any way to keep me. Typical ATT. I figure my relationship with them has amounted to over $40,000 over the past two decades. Apparently, that is of no interest to them. OH, and they said I still need to overpay my bill and they will issue a credit of the overpayment in the form of a gift card within 2-3 weeks. lol
