While I do sympathize with you man , having no internet can be a burden especially with deadlines and work , SONIC is currently dealing with the wildfires which affect some of their employees ... while delivering service is their job I think in this case they have a very valid reason as to why the service is not delivered ... and I am also pretty sure they will do everything in their power to make sure you get your service up and running ... in the mean time if you need some fast pipe / wifi I have sonic fiber and I would be more than happy to help you out if you need access ... pm me and we can take it from there.
Thanks pockyken007 for offering, must be sweet having Fiber, I'm actually at the cut-off for it (one block away) so I'll have to be patient since it hasn't budged in months.
When I arrived home today, the box with the Pace modem+router was here, I hooked it up at 4 AM to see if it would help but no dice, so I just left it connected.
Then later today, I decided to check and finally have a connection!
However I'm still seeing the same speeds that I had before, my old sync rate was 19510 Kbps/ 1179 Kbps, now I see 22803/ 1079. Only a minuscule bump in Download, sad times.
At least I can do work now. I would've thought I would see a noticeable improvement given my original sync on ADSL2+ was decent.
