When we lived in Smithfield, we had Sprint for a telephone provider. When we moved to Selma, the local provider was Bell South, whom I liked better than Sprint and had for years while living in Raleigh. After Time Warner finally offered digital phone in Selma, I went with their service. Since I am a Time Warner employee, I get half off the cost.
I am glad I am not with Sprint just so that I don't have a telephone company dumb enough to change its name to something likeEmbarq.
