[Vision2020] Frontier (was Verizon) DSL

Good to know about Time Warner being slower as well.

My understanding is that cable modem users share local bandwidth (or
something like that), so it's possible to see slowness when lots of folks in
your area are utilizing the service at the same time.  I thought DSL was
different in that respect, but perhaps I'm mistaken?

We've been having trouble with Time/Warner internet being slow as well. 
Might be related to a new crop of students with smartphones overwhelming the
trunk line feeding the area. Just a guess.
