    Why I am switching from Verizon DSL

    Verizon is a cheap company - not only they saved money by replacing
    all American workers by cheaper foreign labor, they are saving money
    by not teaching tech support what is the internet service. It is few
    days I cannot connect to NNTP server news.verizon.net using Agent - I
    called tech support and was told that he don't know what is NNTP
    server or newsgroup server. He told they don't teach them about NNTP
    servers - he had no idea if it is up or down. IT SUCKS!!!

    Replace Verizon with Comcast, Qwest, AT&T, Bell South, Pac Bell, GTE,
    Earthlink, AOL, etc. etc.

    They all suck. :)

    If you switch to a different provider, you might just find that they
    don't offer USENET at all.

    Why not just subscribe to a reliable full-service USENET news
    provider?
