|Re: [PLUG] FCC to subsidize broadband for low income households|
I was not surprised, really.
But I gave it shot, to use some privileged info. from you guys.
I suspect if it's a Fed law- it covers all ISPs.
I'll try WindSteam tomorrow and observe their " duck and weave " routine also. It's funny but sad to see the antics of these mega-companies; and what they force their employees to do.
Sorry to see this ordeal continue Roque. I suspect Windstream has to provide this too. Comcast and Windstream are both CLECs (Verizon is the LEC) so if Comcast has to provider service Windstream does.
Try giving them a call and if you reach an impasse let me know. I do know someone at Windstream.
