They provide low quality service at exorbitant prices, and then complain about clients using their services.
Yeah, no shit. I don't recall Comcast, Qwest, Charter, or Century offering any kind of quality search engine or a user generated content service such as YouTube. I'm not praising Google for their services, but if any is to be given, Google has earned more than any of the ISPs I've suffered.
Until that happens, you're all still willing parts in the corrupt, evil machine and will be regarded and treated as such.
Well said. I find it hard to have any respect towards those who would seek out power and opportunity such as this. Power does not corrupt, but power attracts the corruptible.
I unfortunately have. I received a Kindle Fire HD as a birthday gift. I tried to be open to using the device, but the amount of spam on the device was disgusting. It went back after about 3 days.
In regards to the rest of my web experience, I see very little, thank you Ad Block Plus and No Script. But were these to go away, and I have no option being online without all the spam, I will happily disconnect. I already bother with little of the WWW as it is now. Personally I wish the sites that complain, would go to an ad-free model and charge for subscription. It would make it very clear that I don't place the same value on what they've published.
Yes Century Link cares, only as far as receiving your payment, however. I had Qwest when I first moved into Denver area. A month later, Century Link took over and disregarded the install payment plan we had arranged with Qwest, and received a disconnection notice as our first contact from Century Link.
I made a payment with the credit card over the phone for $100, and said I can pay the other $30 with my next bill. OK says the CSR, and 10 days later my net and phone are disconnected. Finally finding a payphone, I call and am told that that there was no payment plan agreement and if there was, $100 paid and $30 next cycle is not acceptable, and service will not return until it is paid in full. They also said that phone service should not have been interrupted, but I guess that may have been due to the telco box on my building missing its cover and having a trash bag taped on with electrical tape, which facing west into the wind, the bag is shredded, leaving all wires exposed. A year later, and the box is still vulnerable. Oh, and I am with Comcast now, and have refused to pay Century Link another dime. I'll take the hit on my credit score.
