I took our cable box and cable modem back to Comcast today, so I have no connectivity at my apartment until Monday, when DSL gets activated. Speakeasy shipped my self-install kit last night, and it was delivered to my building this morning, 12 hours and 54 minutes later. That's impressive. I'm still working to get my phone line up, though. The building wiring guy can't figure out what binding post (the equivalent of port on a switch) is mine, and claims the number SBC gives me is wrong. Today I scheduled an SBC repair tech for Monday. I think the odds are better than 50/50 that the guy comes out, figures it out in under 5 minutes, and says their was no problem. In that case the building gets to pay that bill, since they told me to get a repair person out. Who knows, though... I claim to know what's up, but in reality I've never even seen the telco equipment.
