The problem is that the "techs" are clueless.

They have NO idea about RF transmitters.

I fought with my ISP for months over different issues.  The one that 
drove me nuts was their constant placing a "filter" in-line with the 
cable that blocked my internet.  The "techs" just grabbed one and threw 
it in line.  The "purpose" was to keep me from "stealing" cable TV.

I finally caught the can open at the curb, REMOVED the stupid filter, 
called them, and told them that UNTIL they installed the CORRECT filter, 
I was holding it.

I FINALLY got a "tech" that could communicate intelligently!  He got the 
CORRECT filter, took the wrong one with, and made NOTES as to OBSERVE 
the DISH on the roof.  Customer gets TV by satellite!
