Until recently I have been a reasonably satisfied customer of Oceanic Time Warner. A few weeks ago it seems they had problems with a cable in the ocean, and internet has been hopeless ever since. I've had a couple of conversations with their customer service but our problems persist. Basically, what I have been told is they have a temporary solution until the cable is fixed (should have been weeks ago) and in the meantime some areas are being throttled.
Whatever it is, I can't even open my GMail.
So I called Hawaii Telecom. They tell me they don't service my address (we live up on St. Louis Heights.) That surprised me. A lot. It's not like we live in an isolated area. There are telephone poles in our street.
We are at the point of getting desperate. My wife goes to the UH library at night to do work she could easily have done at home if we had internet. For the past weeks I've been living off of my iPad, but it only goes so far for doing real work.
So what would be a possible alternative? Are there any other decent providers?
