Default FINALLY. INTERNET. (My CenturyLink Story)

oh geez oh geez oh geez.
so. We finally have internet.
and It took 2 weeks.
Here's what happened.
It all started about 3 weeks ago, when we were trying to figure out moving internet to 6 hours away.
We've been with Qwest/CenturyLink for about 10 years before I was born, so a long time. We switched to comcast 'bout 6 months ago, when they offered faster internet for cheaper. Turned out they weren't faster then Qwest, but we only figured that out when we were about to move, and where we moved, comcast doesn't run through.
so we told centurylink the deal with how we were moving up here, and asked them if they ran their wires up here.
they said no. So we called several other Internet companies, but all of them didn't run through here.
Then this one company, WildBlue, said they could give us really crappy internet for 90 bucks a month, with a $150 installation fee. We paid the 150, but then centurylink called us back and said they DO run through up here. Anyway, after about 5 times of switching their minds between Running through up here and not, they said they couldn't a couple days ago. So my dad found this one company, 'BeeLine' and my mom called them up.
It was a phone call that lasted a few minutes, and they said that we could internet right on the spot with:
4Mbps Down
3Mbps Up
$26.95 per month
And said they could have the internet hooked up by today at 10:00.
They never came over, so by 10:30 my mom called, they said that we weren't scheduled at all, so they'll come over at 3:00. They came at 1:15-1:20, and finished up at about 2:30. So I started writing this post, and we're finally SETTLED IN.
Did a Speedtest.net speed test, with following results:
5.50Mbps Down
1.93Mbps Up
29 ms Ping
