Like many here, I live in a rural area. My internet connection is by dialup. I have determined that I could have DSL if the phone company would install a DSLAM card in the switch gear near my place. The phone company gives me the runaround when I request the service. The DSLAM card is expensive and they do not want to provide one due to the low population density. I have sent numerous emails to various departments within the phone system to no benefit. I also sent the state public utlities commission an email requesting them to intervene. Their response was not encouraging. Does anyone have any suggestion as to how I might influence the phone company to upgrade their service?
