  • When tried to upload, SUDDENLINK FAILED.  Erased the file on Suddenlink to 0 bytes and would stated File Transfer Failed.  451 failure.   Tried to call several times and put on hold for over 25 minutes each time.   Phone battery died so lost connection!  Will keep trying.  HELP from  Suddenlink has been very, very, very bad since a company in Europe bought it a few years ago.  Had switched to Suddenlink years ago when QSL.NET got very slow but it was sold a few months later and now is fast.  It took up to 10 minutes to upload a 500 kb file.  Now it takes less than 1 second!
