Good afternoon Netizens…
In Saturday’s Spokesman’s article on Qwest upgrading DSL http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2009/jul/25/qwest-upgrading-dsl/ author Tom Sowa does not make mention of the potential impact this much-needed project will have on ALL Qwest DSL customers, for despite all that you may have read on this issue, a considerable number of DSL customers currently use other Internet Service Providers and yet receive DSL services from Qwest. How does this work?
Back when DSL was first touted to Qwest subscribers a lot of people were unwilling to make the jump to High-Speed DSL and the result was that Qwest made agreements with various other service providers that they could resell DSL to their customers.
It remains to be seen whether or not these DSL customers who use other Internet Service Providers will be able to make the quantum leap to the new DSL rates. In most cases, even the ISP’s themselves know how this new set of services will work.
Are the new speeds available only from Qwest? Will your ISP offer the new speeds to their DSL customers?
seems to know. This is an evolving story it seems.
