Newsflash!

I’m getting DSL! The day after my DD’s birthday, it will be turned on. I’m starting out with the slowest speed to see how it goes. So, on April 22, I should be part of the Broadband Era. There’s a downside, though, that I’m addressing tomorrow. I was contacted by AT&T directly and agreed to order on the phone. When I went online later, I found that if I had ordered through the web site, I might have qualified for a lower rate. Plus, if I had ordered online and gotten the faster speed, the modem would have come with a rebate making it free. Was I ambushed? Will I care when I’m able to do more in less time? Stay tuned and I’ll let you know.

    Wow, Tommie, that’s exciting! Now you can spend even more time on line watching all those things you couldn’t watch before!

    I thought at first you were talking about my Chapter 13 being exciting. Yes, I’ll be able to see what you’re seeing. I was looking at the speeds and, according to the web site, it isn’t fast enough for streaming video. I e-mailed that to merm and he said that was a marketing tool and I should be fine with the slowest speed. I can’t wait! Guess I’ll have to, though.
