Anyone know how the Cumby Tel. folks are coming on their expansion? I know they are laying cable, but have lost track of their progress.

It looks like the only DSL option for Hopkins County rural internet.

I know they're laying lines on SH 19 right now. We switched to Cumby Telephone as soon as the lines were installed in our rual area. They are SO much better than the Verizon service we had. They are a very efficient CO OP and you get a live person to speak with whenever you call. We now get instant DSL and just cannot say enough about how well we are pleased with their service. Additionally, they sent out a holiday greeting just yesterday with an additional $10.00 credit slip we can use to deduct from our next monthly phone bill.

Wait til you get the dividend check.

I think ours was a couple hundred.

We have had co-op DSL for a while. People hardly believe that we have it way out here, and its relatively cheap. Haha.

Hum.... I had stock in the Cumby phone company back in the early 1970's. Wonder if it's worth anything.

All very good news.

I have the cheapest satellite Internet @ $62 per month. And Verizon, don't get me started! :angry:

We get DSL from Cumby Telephone and the service is outstanding.
It costs around $40.00 per month for the computer. :)
