Greenhorn Road DSL Service

The AT&T trucks were first seen in a flurry of activity along Greenhorn Road in Grass Valley over the 2010 Thanksgiving weekend. November and December rains curtailed some of the DSL build-out in the area. We have found, from past AT&T DSL deployment, that the launch date from when truck activity starts can be anywhere from 2-4 months. AT&T reveals nothing about launch dates, but customers typically know because they will be besieged by AT&T telemarketers and mailings as the date approaches. Any information we post here about deployment dates or location has typically been accessed through one of the many AT&T installers. It is not necessarily accurate.

There was one household early on in the process that was asked to have a remote terminal (which essentially amplifies the DSL signal from the central office) co-located on their property. When presented with the AT&T contract for this work, they cited a clause which held them responsible for any damage to the equipment and consequently declined to sign on.

Apparently, there are remote terminals installed at Family Circle and Jones Ridge Road. Typically, if you are located with 20,000 feet of those boxes, you will be able to access DSL service. The slower speeds are only available closer to the end. There was one to be installed on Yama Way, but an easement couldn’t be obtained. This has nothing to do with the above mentioned incident.

Stay tuned for more information as we have it. Spiral Internet is accepting pre-orders for this DSL service. Call us at 478-9822.

    Reading up on the Greenhorn DSL service I see that there was one household was asked if to have a remote terminal on their property and were asked to sign an AT&T contract that would hold the property owner responsable for any damage to the equipment. Now damage can come from many places as we have all seen from these last winter storms. Is AT&T asking them to be responsible for all that or just malicious damage, just what? Seams as though this whole project has had one problem after another. Meanwhile we all sit out here and suffer through this horrable dialup service. Seems as though AT&T could come up with solutions to any of these problems. Come on AT&T , you have smart people, solve the problems.

  • Whew!!! I just happened on this site as I was liokong for reviews on TV converter boxes. Even though my current situation with ATT is not the same as this blog is discussing I want to share what ATT has done to me.I changed to ATT landline phone service so I could get their Express Pro DSL service. I did not want Basic and the highest speed level I was told is not available to me where I live. I do not live in the boonies . So after a year of paying for Express DSL service and complaining for much of that time about numerous issues I still have problems. It takes about 3 hours for each call(what a waste of my time) so I have not called Internet Tech Service as much as I should have. I found out last Sunday during a trouble call that I ONLY have Basic, not the Express Pro which I requested and have been paying for this past year. A maintenance internet tech told me this. I was really upset. All of my bills show I have paid the higher fee. I thought it was about time ATT feel in their pocket how dishonest, deceitful and unethical they are. I called a lawyer and was told I could only recover the difference in what I paid. I was more upset!!! So all I can do is file a complaint with the BBB and the state Consumer Protection. I also found out that ATT has more consumer complaints than any other business, so they now have a separate dept that only handles ATT consumer complaints and they can’t keep up.
