Argghhhh.... I am getting frustrated with my current ISP Xtratyme. They
are very nice people but seem too busy to follow through with supporting my account.
I live in Kingston,
MN which is in rural central Minnesota about
an hour west of the Twin
Cities. There is no cable or DSL to my community. (You can get DSL north or south
of me a couple of miles away.) My local phone carrier is Sprint/Embarq who
has no interest in providing any advanced services other than basic dial tone.
I can get ISDN to
my house but Embarq will not provide any services like Internet on top of the ISDN service.
(I would prefer one provider.)
I am right on the fringe coverage area of two wireless ISPs:
Xtratyme and BroadBand-MN.
With Xtratyme using
a 512k account I am seeing 450/120.
Upload speeds are brutal often in the 30-50k range.
It makes general web activity pretty rough let alone working over a VPN, uploading
content to my web site, or any decent VOIP activity.
I maybe forced to hunt for another ISP or other connectivity options if we can't get
this resolved ASAP.
