Free At Last
The Phone Company’s DSL line is finished, over, done. I pulled the plug this evening after a lot of testing of the new connection and equipment. The landline phone is also over. There are no more dial-up ISPs in the area for back-up in the case of emergency, so there was no point in keeping it.
The new cable system is working, and it was actually installed on time. The installer knew what he was doing, and fixed a potential line problem [the signal was too strong] with a solution that will allow a quick fix if the signal strength falls.
Things are noticeably faster for both ethernet connections and WiFi.
The best part will be when I call the Phone Company and tell them good bye.
