Bully, your rather arrogant message did state
that you were from "the most affluent city in OC". So
I asked you where that city is, you responded "The
Pro El Toro Newport Beach". If that was humor then I
missed it. I was trying to start an intelligent debate,
obviously you are only capable of meaningless chants about
jets flying over holes in the ground. I suggest we
both get back to discussing Cox stock. This is not the
forum for this type of debate.
What is your problem? Seems to me, you can't
recognize humor when you see it. Do you just cruise these
boards waiting to pounce on someone for no reason? You
sound like someone who has a massive chip on his
shoulder. Oh, and what makes you think I even support an
airport at El Toro? Just a conclusion you jumped to
without any basis. Please go back into the hole you
crawled out of. May a thousand jets a day fly 500 feet
over your hole-in-the-ground.
I might have guessed. On what criteria do you
base your statement that NB is the most affluent city
in OC? Probably the same criteria you use to try and
justify an airport at El Toro. I have news for you the
rest of OC will not allow that airport to be built.
You, George and the three corrupt county supervisors
should give it up.

I think you may be right. I recall reading in our
local newspaper a couple of years ago that PacBell was
installing fiber optics in my area and there was some street
work at the time. I also read the article on Sol
Trujillo's experience and have been wondering about that
possibility as well.
It is puzzling how the telcos can
be pushing DSL (which from my work experience with
it, I find to be quite speedy) while at the same time
updating their systems to fiber optic cable. Seems like a
conflict. I wonder if they will be calling DSL customers in
the future and saying, "Mr. Customer, the good news
is you now have higher quality fiber optic telephone
service. The bad news is you will no longer have DSL
Because I want to be able to access the internet
while outside my home. I will consider Cox@home, but
since I have moved from a 28k modem on a 166MHz PC with
32 meg of RAM to a 56k modem on a PC with 750MHz and
192meg of RAM, I have found the speed of accessing web
pages to be rather fast. It is about 1 to 2 seconds
slower than the commercial DSL line in my office. Of
course, I realize that if I wanted to download a large
file, it would be a lot slower. So, for now, I am quite
satisfied with the speed on my new PC. If that changes, I
will go to Cox, which by the way is $10 per month less
than PacBell DSL.
PacBell has probably already rebuilt the network
in your area to fiber. If that is the case, you'll
never get DSL, since it is available only over copper.
This also happened to Sol Trujillo, CEO of US West. He
lives in a neighborhood that is served by a fiber
network. He wanted DSL but couldn't get it, so US West put
a T1 into his house instead.
what the DSL marketing machine would have you believe,
fiber is the future in telecom, not copper. DSL is an
old technology, and the only reason it was finally
rolled out is to keep from losing more marketshare to
companies like Cox.
There is a real conflict here,
since the Bells have already spent so much time and
money building out with fiber in so many areas and are
now using DSL in others. It should be interesting to
see what happens.
I too live in an affluent Orange County city, and
I have all of Cox's services and couldn't be
happier. The commercials depicting a neighborhood fighting
over "a single cable line" are very deceiving. Yes my
modem does slow down somewhat at peak times but it is
always faster than my T1 line at work. I don't think DSL
can even compare to a T1 on its best day. You should
give Cox's modem a try. By the way where is "the most
affluent city in Orange County"?
