I had Verizon DSL for a time when I first moved to Southern Ohio. All went well until one day I get a call from Bombay India. Trying to sell me
insurance. This guy had all of my personal information, and when queried, admitted he got it from Verizon. So, I get on the phone, asking for a
supervisor, going up the line, and after about an hour I get the CEO's office, one of his suburbanites. I accused them of selling, conveying, or
transferring my personal information to a third party without my permission, as pertaining to the contract I had with Verizon. We went around and
around for 15 minutes or so, and he finally said he would end my contract, but wanted money, some $142. I told him to get it, he would have to take me
to court, where he would not be facing a lawyer, but he would be facing me, personally, and I would show his criminal activity, and violation or my
4th Amendment Rights. He backed down, and Verizon swallowed the $142.
I switched to Time Warner Cable, and I love the fast Roadrunner Internet. Here we do not have cable in all areas, but it is slowing getting there. I
also keep hearing of free Wifi for everyone. If they get that, I may have to install a wireless card on my rig.
