Imx Fix in my experience

I am being deliberately taunted by the CLEC's, MSO's and the vast right wing conspiracy in the form of fiber conduit on the sidewalk in front of my house (click inset image).

Regular readers will be aware of my connectivity dilemma (which is basically explained as me being stuck at 56k) while being so close to AOL, Exodus, Verizon, SpeakEasy and GeekSpeed points of presence. NONE of them are able to feed me the gorging amounts of data thruput I so desire. The kick in the pants, represented in the inset pic, is that they already have put conduit in the ground, at the very point those spools sit. They pumped that junk into the ground six months ago!

Just this past weekend I called Adelphia to see what kind of time table that cable modem access is for my area. The gave me the same answer I've gotten for the last year, "2 to 3 months." I think they put the backhoe and conduit directly in front of my house to tease me. Don't you?
