Due to circumstances beyond my control we've been offline for the past week. Once again I will repeat myself when I say WILDBLUE SUCKS. I've never been so unhappy about an ISP as I've been with this company. We have had nothing but problems since we signed up and the customer service is truly hit or miss. Some "know the score" while others tend to treat you like a total idiot. And honestly, after the past 7 months I've heard most every story they can lay on me. After awhile you get to know when you are getting BS stories or actual truth. If I could be paid for the countless hours I've spent on the phone (and on hold) with this company I could afford to buy the goats we want to put out here. I kid you not! LOL@ kid. Unfortunately we can't just "dump" them and use someone else because ... wait for it... They roped us into a freakin' 12 month contract. It seems I can't get out of it and so will have to suffer with these incompetent fools for a few more months. I'm seriously thinking that our old air-card service would (and did) do a better job. I suppose its my fault really. I was so caught up into trying to save some money that I just jumped on their offer. Now I'm regretting it again. The problems we have had in no way compensates for the $5.00 savings.
Anyway... I'm back online and trying to catch up on all your blogs. My connection isn't much better than dial-up though and so its taking quite a bit of time. As I'm writing this I am waiting for the service tech to come out but I refuse to hold my breath as once again I've been stood up by them yesterday. There isn't much I like less than to be told that someone will be out here between "12-2pm" or whatever and then they don't show. So I sit here again waiting for someone to show up and this time I refuse to hold my breath. Smurf Blue isn't my best color!
