And I have to confess I'm amazed at all these DSL horror stories.
I guess I was just fortunate or something. I was an early adopter
when PacBell introduced it, and consequently I'm paying the same
rate I ever paid for my static IP address, where later adopters
have either to have a dynamic IP address or pay $50 more than I'm
paying for the privilege of staticity.
I've never had really serious problems with it -- though,
truth be told, another person in my same house signed up and
got the dynamic DSL and had nothing but problems. Time
to set up a household firewall, and just have all the house
machines go thru my DSL, I guess.
PBI as an ISP, now, that's another fsckin story entirely. But
no complaints at all about the DSL service.
There ya go, vroom,
your next poll should try to discover how many folks have their
entire house ethernetted ... ;)
