I have had Verizon HighSpeed DSL in New Hampshire until it got sold off to fairpoint about a year ago.
Supposively they just WRECK connections, but luckily for me it took about 6 months to go to crap.
4/5 weekends at least 3 hours total I spend with ping spiking while playing on chicago and new york game servers going from 300ping to 500ping constant for at least 30 minutes before settling.
TONIGHT, for a straight hour, it was 400-500 CONSTANT, I power-cycled 3 times.
This is stupid.
When I call them they dodge any solution.
They have one of the worst reps ever, there were rallies and news articles to prevent verizon to give fairpoint to new hampshire.
customer support is stupid,
isps dont know what ping is, they just think those speedtests mean everything.
id love ANY help,
i havent been this short-tempered in a long time.
my zip is 03444, i dont know any other isps
