Something happened on the Internet. Perhaps I spoke to a company representative. Perhaps I updated some information when I accessed my account online. They won't say exactly what happened, or how it happened, but they would like me to know that something did, in fact, occur, and that I am welcome to phone them to discuss it.
CenturyLink, née CenturyTel, has been my DSL and landline provider for over seven years, so perhaps they have finally figured out that the quickest way to reach me directly is via my rural mail carrier. It's about as fast as my DSL service if my one neighbor happens to be online. I live in a bandwidth exhaust area, which is a polite way of saying that they oversold the system's capacity.
Mike can get up to speeds of over 50 miles per hour between houses while delivering mail out here in the hinterlands. It makes me wonder who's the snail mail carrier now.
