Verizon service and quality still suck in Texas. It's as slow (or slower)
than dial-up 25% of the time. And they have you go through all these silly
rituals when you call up to complain about the service. Unplug this and
that and wait for 5 minutes, et.al... Never works and I finally gave up.
I'm thinking of going with cable internet service.
