Comcast is popular in my Marin County neighborhood but here comes the competition.
ADEX Telecom (a contract staffing service) showed up in front of my house around 3:30 p.m. today with a bucket truck. Here they are, mucking around the street pole adjacent to the driveway.
I chatted amiably with the “bucket guy” (B.G.). He stated he was contracted with AT&T, and that we would soon be getting “really great tv services.”
“Oh, you mean U-verse,” I said
“That’s right,” confirmed B.G.
When would U-verse be available, I asked. B.G.said he wasn’t in a position to say, but "maybe as soon as sixty days."
When I asked exactly what he was doing up there in the sky above my home, he replied that he was “verifying that every house has a dedicated line.”
