Our ISP sent out a note yesterday that they have sold out to what, imo anyway, is likely one of the worst isps in Canuckistan.
This means that its time to look for a different provider as these things always take longer and cost more than they should.
I assume from your comments that Xplornet bought out your ISP.
No chance of getting fiber or a private wireless link to fiber? Have my choice of fiber in town, but at the farm have a private high speed wireless link to fiber.
Right in one!
(Previous ISP has written promises form Xplornet - - - - we had those too for the year (different location) that we were on their absolutely useless service!)
There seems to be a chance of us getting fiber but of course - - - - they have to keep their investment 'partner' happy so we get to pay more than you do per month.
I had considered setting up a private link as well but really couldn't find any easy connection in town where I could set up the base.
Dunno - - - - - why couldn't this fiber stuff have been done like the rural power co-ops were 60 70 years ago?
(We could have had fiber some 10 years ago! - - - likely cheaper too!!!!)
