matman Posted August 11, 2021 CID Report Share Posted August 11, 2021 I got my Centurylink internet connection after I discovered a construction crew going down the highway in front of my house and property. As they started through my front yard, (through the easement), I went out and chatted with the crew and found out it was a new Fiber for Centurylink. I had to force myself not to do cartwheels back to the house when we were done with the conversation. I had just realized a life-long dream of sorts of moving out in the country, away from the rat race of the big city. I was raised in the country, but due to being in the service for ten years, being stationed all over the world, I had my fill of big cities. One thing I did not realize was out in the country, it's hard to get a decent internet speed. And yes, I fell for the ole booby trap 'Excusenet' and was signed up for 2 years without even knowing it. I don't want to mention any real names, like Hughesnet for example, but they're one of the Satellite companies that advertise a great package, but enter you into a 2 year nightmare. Plus, I have to admit, all the years in the big city had it's perks. So, I wasn't aware of being slightly spoiled with the fast connections. So, on my 3rd year out here in the boonies, I saw and chatted with the construction crew. I went on to nag, and nag until finally Centurylink admitted they had a fiber out my way and was excepting new customer connections. What could go wrong ?? (more on this later) I live in South Central Missouri. If anyone has Centurylink and want to chat a bit and tell me how it's doing, if you like it or you're mad as hell at them, whatever, feel free to drop me a line.
