Chris Moody started this petition to Otelco

We are a very small town that is and has been limited to ONE internet provider for a very very long time now (20+ years i know of) which is Otelco (use to be hopper telephone company).

They offer an outdated DSL package for a ridiculous amount of money each month! It’s around $75-$85 a month for 5 mbps down & less than 1 Mbps upload connection that never runs close to what the package offers!! 2+ years ago around about they brought fiber to the area but only in the small town around the old office that was in walnut grove and about a mile outside of town! Said they would continue and finish the area ASAP! 2+ years later they haven’t touched where they stopped at due to financial issues or something!

Customers outside of town but in town limits still have to suffer the DSL issues and slow dial up speeds! Several techs have been to my house and several others i know to try fixing the issues with DSL and still hasn’t been fixed. Even had 2 techs tell me not much can be done due to the lines and all the stuff being outdated and would have to wait for fiber to be ran. I ended up canceling my service because I couldn’t use it half the time and couldn’t use it all if it ever rained! No other provider covers this area and they know it and don’t really care! It’s sad that they don’t wanna update the area and get with the times on a decent internet speeds!

Their Lightwave is 25/25Mbps or 100/100 Mbps for about the same price as the 5/1Mbps DSL connection! Which is ridiculous as well! I’m creating this petition in hopes if enough people sign it they will continue the install of Lightwave Fiber in the area. They stopped less than a mile from my house 2+ years ago and haven’t moved since! 

 

My DSL connection would run around 2 Mbps down & .5 Mbps upload for $85 a month! I’ve emailed their main office, I’ve filled out request forms and everything. 

 

So maybe if everyone please sign this especially if you live in Walnut Grove or Altoona Alabama Area!
