Let me begin by touching on the geographic disposition of internet service providers. I’m in 4s ranch, a community inside of San Diego. The cable provider is Time Warner, the phone service is PacBell and its etched into granite. I tried getting DSL from speakeasy when I first moved here but PacBell said they couldn’t do it because “The cost of running the copper where it needs to go exceeds the money we’ll make by selling this line”. I was stuck with Time Warner.
