Getting faster internet service
We just moved into a rural area that is only serviced by AT&T and the only service we can get is 6mbps DSL branded U-verse. The lines down the street on the poles are not in the greatest shape (2 day outage due to insulation having rubbed off between my pair and someone else’s). After talking with our neighbors they have slow service as well.
Is is there someone locally (or not) I can talk to about getting some form of faster service? We all know running fiber is expensive (we’re about a mile off a known fiber route) and would be ok signing contracts etc to get better service but talking to customer service seems useless (they told me they didn’t even offer service when the previous owner had service there).
I work from home, and my aunt who is building down the street both work from home so we may be down with getting a business connection too.
