What do you think every time you've had to go through this?
What happens when you call KPU, 225-1000
Have a problem with your DSL Modem? bring it in, get it switched out.
Let's not even start talking about their pricing.
Selling out to MTA is the wrong option, if the city must get it off its books, spin it off to a Cooperative
It's bad enough that MTA is handling our tech support -- (This is about to get technical)
MTA uses as system called PPoE
What does that mean for you? Call in after hours with problems with your internet, and see how well it works out for you having someone from Mat-su trying to help you with a system they don't fully understand.
In short, selling KPU off to some out-of-town company might make fiscal sense, but won't end well for people like you and me, a quick hit of cash may seem like a great idea, but longterm it's giving up what makes KPU-telco a great, local service.
