BellSouth, the company for whom I had the worst working experiences, is now providing service to match. The line hums and crackles, dial-up only stays on for a minute or two at a time and connection speeds are as low as 4k, my DSL rarely connects and when it does it works at approximately an eighth of its promised speed. I've made frequent requests for service, but whatever they are doing (if anything) isn't working. I checked around, and for less money I can replace their DSL with a faster cable modem. The only remaining task is to replace my phone service. The cable company doesn't offer phone services and any other company would still have to use the lousy BS lines, so I thought I might finally replace the land line with a mobile phone. I almost never use the phone - just the odd pizza or Chinese food delivery, plus I would like access to emergency services if necessary - so I need a service which has extremely low monthly rates even if the per minute rate is high. Also, they need to be reliable. Any suggestions? Would it be cheaper to buy a phone and a prepaid phone card? Do they expire?
