Just a quick post to let you know. I’ll be intermittent in my responses for a while. My internet provider is in a pissing contest with an un-named cellphone company who put up a new tower in Phoenix and is jamming my internet provider’s signal. This on top of the snow collapsing the repeater building, and them not being able to get to it for days.
I’d say it’s crumbling infrastructure, but it’s not, at least not completely. It’s mostly poor planning (don’t build a building with aluminum siding when you know it gets below freezing and stays that way for months, don’t build a tower so cheaply it’s not done right and leans from subsidence) mixed in with aggressive companies with too much money and not enough common sense. One of these problems is in my internet provider’s control, and can probably be fixed….the other — well, let’s say I’m not holding my breath.
