    OK, I live on a beautiful island with a climate most people dream of, but...


    <RANT>
    As some of you know, I am in the middle of a house move. I am now settled in the new place, and finally got internet yesterday. I was using ADSL at my old place and we thought it would simpply be a matter of phoning the company with the new address (same telephone number) and we copuld have ADSL almost immediately. However, we are now on a dial up connection and it is bl@@dy slow and keeps disconnecting. The ADSL will take 40 days to do the PAPERWORK and another 20 days or so to connect me to ADSL. Why? Because my internet provider is not the main telephone network in Spain. We phoned Telefonica (the telephone network in Spain that has a monopoly), and they said we could sign up for ADSL with them and be connected in as little as 4 days. They own the lines, they rent them to other companies for ADSL/internet connections, but they want our money, so they make it a slow process for those companies that rent their lines for these purposes. Would this happen in USA? I doubt it would in the UK.

    Oh well, must go and get another load of stuff from the car.

    Thanks, this looks like the business. I have ordered ADSL from Telefonica so will hopefully be back soon at a decent speed, but this is really something to consider. Great find.

    PerfectG ...thats standard operating procedure for the Telcos in the USA. Heck AT&T is suing MCI (formerly WorldCon) and another one for jacking up LD rates by routing calls thru Canada to pick up some extra tarrif fees.

    Happened in the UK to me, and happened again when I moved to the US. Thankfully last two places have been apartment/townhouse communities that are pre-wired etc so I got online id a day each time.

    I'm thinking of buying a satellite system so I can move out to my cabin for the summers. A friend in Northern Vermont has a system and says uploading a file is painfully slow.
