Intermittent connection.So another night in the community of Binscarth and its been raining all day and my DSL modem can't seem to stay connected as there is to much line static from the shitty copper cable termination in the peds. Ithe more rain/humidity we get the worst it gets. My pings to yahoo (right command prompt) are timing out more than 50 % of the time, yet as you can see I have a 100% ping connection (left cmd prompt) to my router. This is about topical for MTS on a humid night. 40 year old aging infrastructure and poor customer service and pathetic speeds, that have not been upgraded since DSL came to our community 15 years ago. They still are advertising the same 7 Mbps yet in reality I am lucky to get 2-3 Mbps and on a rainy night like tonight I can't even run a speed test. You can call and call and call and it makes no difference. **** last spring MTS was charging my organization for internet for 6 weeks (and I called 4 times to tell them it was not working) and they kept saying it's all good on my end and it must be my router. You know what it was? They had all 50 pair cable disconnect from the PED to relocate the cable due to the highway construction. Yet when I asked if it could still be disconnected the basically (in a nice way) asked my how stupid did I think they where? Well it turnd out when I talked to guy in the MTS van connecting up the cable in the PED they have no idea what the other hand is doing. I can only hope when Bell takes over things get better, but I am going to guess that will not be the case. And yes I would pay twice the price for some that I can use rather than paying half the price for something that fails to work 40% of the time.

Have you tried this route from the MTS web site to see if you can things improved with your service?  I am going to guess this is another name for some of the other Telco's "Office of the President" contact area.
