Verizon FINALLY replaced the faulty DSL router at the Hyde Park central office (local switching center) and the DSL line is, at LONG last, back to normal.
The DSL connection is now continuous. As opposed to the working for a random period of time then just stopping dead. Requiring a power recycling of the modem/router here to force a reconnect.
Still and all, Verizon DSL is better than Comcast's cable modem service.
Supposedly, Verizon FiOS (fiber optic to the home) service is coming to this part of Boston by the end of the year.
US$99 a month for two years. I am SO signing up for this! 5 megabits per second Internet access, vs. the 3 mbps DSL service, cable TV with more channels than I'm getting now for US$40.00 a month LESS than what I'm paying Comcast, and unlimited long distance phone service.
Yeah. I am SO going to geek out when the glass is installed!
