When I called WISE back in October to ask about the new internet speeds and how they will be implemented, I was told we have to wait till December. I called again yesterday to see what happened and was informed that those with WISE machines can’t be upgraded to more than 1M connection and that this will cost 50$.

So basically the government issued a decree under which the minimum speed is 1M and WISE’s highest speed is only 1MB. Therefore everyone with a WISE machine is screwed and has to pay extra to get DSL now.

I am still on my 512K connection until I figure out what to do.
