I’m not legal, but I don’t see how they can stop you from using whoever you want. I had Comcast before and hated them, for the same reasons. I called their customer service every day that I didn’t have service, and they had to credit my account for when there was no service. Some months I had no bill because of this!! I finally switched, and we’ve only had issues with our router, which we own, and not the service.

Also, is there something in your lease that says you have to use that company?

Curious:  Are you using wireless?  Do you have it password protected so that your neighbors are “stealing” your bandwith?

I am literally having the exact same internet problem as you at a our new apartment. anyway our apartment complex gives us an option of two internet providers so we are switching to the other one next week. And if that one sucks too then I’ll be in the same boat as you.

The thing is I dont think they are breaking any laws, because this is pretty common and I’m very sure if you call a different internet company they will tell you they dont provide service to your complex, atleast thats what I was told when I called another company.

Does your cell phone provider have a wireless option you could subscribe to (presuming, of course, that you have a cell phone provider), and drop the complex’s service?

@Mrs Hedgehog: Could you change to Verizon or someone like that?  Or even just get a Mi-Fi from them???  

Because if you do it that way, you’re bouncing off the CELL PHONE towers and going through the cell phone service, not an actual ISP.  

I’d personally just go that route and drop their service.  Of course, we use Verizon’s mi-fi and LOOOOVE it!

Sorry you’ve gotta deal with this. 🙁
