ajsmama: Took him a lot of back and forth to get back to Frontier so he could get Internet (he had problems with them right after takeover but it's been working for months). Charter didn't work with his Frontier modem and they never gave him new one just took over

ajsmama: And they never ran cable across the street from pedestal to his house 200ft max. Ours is almost 700ft though easy to pull since we have conduit - if they left the cable and blew out any water from the conduit we could pull it ourselves. But don't want TV

northof49: If you don't want TV, just ask for a "Dry Loop" I know up here we can get a dry loop for both DSL and Cable. They charge about $5 a month just for the use of there line.

ajsmama: I asked when we built they wanted over $1000 IIRC to run the cable (660ft phone line was free) we didn't have the $. I'll ask about dry loop and monthly fee. They advertise $29.99/mo each for 3 services don't know about only 2.

northof49: OUCH, on the cable run. The company I work for, we have spent upwards of $10,000 to run Cable to a building just to get internet. That included trenching and conduit about 500'. These days most of it is now fiber and free right to the dmarc.

ajsmama: Trenching and conduit was done when we built. Put in 3 conduits have 1 spare.

ajsmama: Just wondering since I know lots of members are from OK - I have been getting calls on farm number from OKC area, no messages. I do screen calls since we've been having lots of scams (incl one claiming IRS lawsuit). If it's anyone here please PM me.
