Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Broadband for my distant kin

We came really close to getting cable modems where we live. Close but no cigar. Earlier this year, they were laying fiber in our neighborhood. We were told that we’d have broadband internet access by the end of the year. Then, the work trucks disappeared. See, our cable provider is Adelphia. And they filed for bankruptcy. And they canceled the broadband rollout. Just three weeks from completion. It sucks to be us.

Of course, the inhabitants of Campbelton in Scotland can try out broadband over power lines, right now. [via Slashdot]

    Look on the bright side. At least you finally posted a new entry and scrolled that scary toe picture below the fold!

    To be honest, that was part of my motivation 🙂

    Hey, Slider, I have to look at the real thing every night! But yeah, I’m glad you posted something, my web-toed hubby, to get that pic out of view! 🙂

    Sucks to be me too. They’ve been promising DSL in my area since Q4 1999
