#29 Frontier Internet A Love Story in Off Topic

I mean kinda I guess :/ The *real* happy ending is that my electric company has established a 5 year plan to bring fiber optic lines down the power lines and the very day those guys connect to the pole outside my house I'm going to call Frontier and be about as happy as anybody ever could to call them and switch out.

#27 Frontier Internet A Love Story in Off Topic

Update.

Called back today, I gave them my service ticket and explained the situation and that I had been previously disconnected when talking to customer service.

The first person put me on hold and did something for a while and then transferred me to her supervisor. This guy said:

"It's really good that you called back for this. This sort of thing happens sometimes where customers will notice problems with the lines near their house and then fix them after first calling in and not getting the sort of service time frame they would like. Then, when the tech shows up, he will just mark it completed without doing anything since the homeowner fixed it. So, I'll just add an addendum here for the tech to check the pole and the connection to the house and that it's no longer laying on the ground because you fixed it yourself - and they should do more than just show up and check it as complete."

They then thanked me for being the best part of Frontier - a slogan I've not heard before.

#26 Frontier Internet A Love Story in Off Topic

Update.

I contacted frontier via phone. They seemed in genuine shock that I rehung the phone lines myself. I asked if the tech would still come so they could reassign my router's phone jack (every jack in the house was dead until I decided to fuck with it - I've got the jack I want live, but it's not getting DSL through it) and check my work.

They hung up on me after confirming my details and reading the ticket aloud to me :(

Calling back today see if they'll "lose connection" again lol.

#22 Frontier Internet A Love Story in Off Topic

5 months later. The saga continues.

So, I decided after 15 years of service, it's time for my bed to go. Went bed shopping, bought a new bed. Why, what does this have to do with Frontier internet? You may ask - well, strap in, I'll tell you.

The bed man offered me free delivery through a third party. Ok great that's awesome. They would even set it up. The day arrives, Saturday at 9 am. They call that my bed is there, but oh no, something weird has happened. *Somehow* my phone line that stretches from the pole, across my driveway, to my garage has gotten knocked down and is lying on the ground! Who knows how that could happen, but those lovely drivers they didn't want to drive over it.

It was patently obvious to me that they didn't notice the phone line and their big box delivery truck had, in fact, caught and torn down my phone line. It pulled 3 lag screws out of my brick masonry, as well as several other screws, zip ties, and various phone accoutrements - but miraculously my internet still worked! Luckily, they noticed what they had done before the ripped the lines clean out of the phone cable box outside my house. I'll just call frontier and see if they will get somebody to come back out here and pull the line up out from in front of my house and my driveway.

I call, and strangely don't have to wait at 9 am this time 5 months later. Good I think. But apparently live wires laying on the ground and blocking my driveway aren't a priority project because they tell me that nobody can be out there to fix it until January 2 - a full 5 days later and there's nothing for it.

So I decide to change tactics. I have to move those lines because I can't get my car out with them as they are. I call the Sheriff. He comes out and confirms that it's only a phone line (damn! had it been electrical the electric company would've been here in like 5 minutes) and that it isn't a hazard to me because you can touch live phone wires without much risk so long as you don't have phone service (this I did not know) - so I'll just have to wait until Jan 2, or hook them back up myself if I wanted to.

Called my brother-in-law and a friend, and we had the holes in the masonry patched, new lag screws in, and the line back up as it was in less than 20 minutes. There's a hole in the soffit from one of the screws, but after calling the delivery company they agreed they would make it right and compensate me for any expenses.

I seriously am excited to call them tomorrow and tell some poor tech support person I rehung my wires myself and that I've sent them an invoice for parts and labor.

Maybe your microphone has some kind of noise gate on it, and it's not transmitting the first part of your speech because it deems it to be too quiet?

#20 us state power rankings in Off Topic

I've been in Gary many times. I have seen the power and glory of Sim's tires. I have bought a slim jim from a man on the corner for 2$.

It still has the largest integrated Steelworks in the USA - despite the whole town being destroyed on the Eastern side by blight and rust and absorbed by Chicago on the Western side.

You can also buy homes there for 1$ so that's nice if you're into fixer-upers.

#18 us state power rankings in Off Topic

Indiana is the greatest state in the Union.

Shadowpuppet, Louster, and myself are all from there, among others.

If you're a Republican, you're basically set to be a Vice President and get paid for life as long as you don't commit a crime or have weird sex fetishes (Mitch Daniels).

Kurt Vonnegut once said "Wherever you go there is always a Hoosier doing something very important there" Fits for Tf2 more or less lol

Yeah we have 33 counties with a higher maternal mortality rate than the Gaza Strip, but that's the USA's fault not ours generally.

We also have a pretty starkly depressing state song which is great. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5VSELhkzec for the feels
