TC98-123 Susan Schamber vs DTG Internet Services.

"We have been internet customers of DTG since Feb.11, 1998. We had very good service until the end of March. At that time our internet began cutting out on us approximately every 2 minutes. DTG has record of how long our connection times were. We have made numerous calls to both DTG and our phone company, Golden West, trying to find out what the problem is and getting it resolved....Golden West tells me DTG has new modems and these modems can't keep up with the demand and DTG says they've had the modems since November with no problems until this time." What do you think the Commission should do to solve this problem? "We would like to know who is disconnecting our internet. We aren't getting straight answers. DTG should also quit advertising the $14.95 unlimited rate if they can't give that service. I also want our bill credited since we are not receiving adequate service." (Staff: SW/CH)

TC98-124 Don and Jenny Malsom vs U S WEST Communications.

The problem with the telephone line goes "back at least 10" years. The sheriff's office receives 911 calls from their location when none were dialed, noise on the line is reported to U S WEST and when the repairman checks the line it is okay, Caller ID does not work, and calls can not "get thru to us." What do you think the Commission should do to solve this problem? "We are told we need new telephone lines - our equipment is too outdated - we request modern equipment like all others are on." (Staff: SW/KC)

Date Filed: 06/29/98


TC98-125 U S WEST Communications filed "to remove the availability of three digit Carrier Identification Codes (CICs) from the Access Services Tariff per the Federal Communications Commission's order in Docket CC92-237....Effective July 1, 1998, only four digit CICs, 10XXXX and 101XXXX dialing patterns will be permitted."
