  1. at the expense of existing customer internet speed, nearly to the hour this service was introduced my internet speed dropped from 28 meg download to 3 meg, , and ping at 60 miles from 33 to 519 ms , now, sure netflix works here but nothing else does , i had at one time enough speed to watch netflix without this upgrade, now i can t even watch a you tube video forget trying to get this fixed a visit to your local office only gets you a phone number with 2 hour wait times or more seeing how i gave up after 2- 2 hour attempts
