Your box to check whether or not I can get DSL and by what companies will not take my email address. says it is invalid. Trust me! It is valid. Who provides DSL in my area with local dialup? I need a new server as .edu will no longer be available to me.

Hi Julie, the script that checks the email address on the high speed internet check availability web page is rejecting the .edu extension. I just tried your phone number with a .com in place of .edu, and only obtained Hughesnet and other satellite providers as available internet service deals. If you do want satellite, then might I suggest that you do the .com trick, check the details offered, then call into the number provided or use the live chat. If you don’t call in and make a purchase with the incorrect email, your confirmation email will go to the wrong place.
Fixing the .edu bug isn’t something I can do this week. I am sorry that you’re having trouble, and I am thankful that you brought this to my attention. However my time is already spread over too many projects, so the bigger problems come first.
Update: the script has been corrected.
