I know the feeling. Because I live out in the sticks, I suffered with dialup for years before DSL finally made it to our area. The only difference is that our dialup speeds were around 2.4kb/s. It was so amazing the first time I tried it out and was suddenly able to download large files that had previously been impossible to get.

To follow up on Namcot's post, the same thing happened to me. Began receiving letters from AT&T stating they were switching over to U-Verse in our area and if I wanted to switch over to call them. If I didn't, our DSL would be cut off on a certain date. Well, I ignored the letters and sure enough, they turned off our DSL. I called them and had to listen to a sales pitch for U-Verse before they would turn everything back on. I politely declined and thankfully they didn't give me any hassle. That was nearly two years ago and our old DSL is still going strong. Some of my neighbors took the offer and let me try out their internet, but I couldn't tell any difference in the performance.

thank u for giving me that buzzword! i suspect the landlord has just installed "u-verse" b/c he hasn't a CLUE what any of this means. so just knowing the term will help me derail 3 more hours of know-it-all-ism. i will structure it as a faux compliment -- praising him for "just" switching the lines over to fiber "...unlike some of the MORONS out there who got suckered into u-verse!"

as dumb as he may be, he will at least recognize the term and shut up for a while. few days anyways.

come next week he'll be "explaining" to me what u-verse is and why it was necessary. while my friends continue on dialup down the street....

in any case, i am hiding at starbucks for the afternoon while the installer does his thing. i'd actly like to be around for it, but not if the Great Santini is also there. he actually cuts off technicians mid-sentence to "answer" questions himself. i know from past experience.

will be going back in few hours to assess the damage. will i:

a) still have phone service?
b) still have phone service somehow incapable of dialup?
c) suddenly have wifi?
d) have a dead phone?
e) find dead body of installer who dared correct landlord on some technical point?
f) find dead body of landlord after he bitched at installer one too many times?

now taking bets!!

the answer is *b* !! kewpie doll to all who guessed correctly.

frankly, i'm surprised. and it's not even like they're doing some sort of frequency trap. the line doesn't even CONNECT to the server -- i attached a handset (phone) to give it a listen and the call simply doesn't go thru. no error message or anything; just HANGS there like i'm one digit short!

have double checked with other numbers, including of various lengths (local/long dist/with and without leading "1"). not a format problem; all calls go thru just fine x/c to any on my "dialup" list (i'm guessing dedicated FAX numbers may suffer likewise, but haven't dug one up to check yet).

so what's the deal? are these lines registered somewhere as such, and therefore the telco simply KNOWS which ones to block? again, it's not like it connects and the impedence is off or w/e. numbers are clearly BANNED from the gitgo. (which begs the question, don't things ever change? if one of these dialin numbers were to be reassigned to a human somewhere, i wouldn't be able to dial them up either!!)

????

not sure of the legality of this. telco is a private company and can do what they want, but govt is pretty strict where utilities are concerned. strikes me odd they'd allow "no dialup for u!" coming out of ANY company....

-----
oh, btw, hardware installed consists of 1 power pack (transformer?), one UPS of sorts (battery backup), and the main unit which looks suspiciously like a router.

landlord claims otherwise, but at this point, who knows.

need a ladder/flashlight/magnifying glass to read any of the labels/model #s etc.; prolly tomorrow. in the meantime, new poll: what is the "main unit" gonna turn out to be??

1) router
2) some sort of signal booster/relay
3) tracking/usage analyzer/HQ-controlled kill switch
4) simple fiber-to-copper interface as claimed (then why power?!)
5) russkye wiretap

after watching the dialup patterns (serial failure) last few days, i think this hang issue is unrelated to the fiber upgrade. so i'm starting a new thread for it.

further speculation on my mystery boxes will remain here!

Great service, not.
Sounds like it's been badly installed, you should be able to dial a 56k modem, there was a video of dialup in 2017 on YouTube not so long ago.
