Re: All I want for xmas....

My ISP is a dumb pipe... And I LOVE it... I can get a faster connection from Time Warner. but my "Dumb" pipe is the best Internet service I've ever had.

It's NEVER been down, It's always consistent, and it always works...

no throttling, no "network management" no "value added services"

I'd rather pay more for a quality dumb pipe than for anything else...

I'll use the pipe as I see fit, that's what I pay for...

It seems naiive to claim your Internet connection has never been down, unless you've only had it say a couple of months. All telecomm connections experience downtime; it's just a matter of how much/little.

But by and large, I would agree...I want my vendor (currently Time-Warner/Roadrunner) to get me to/from the rest of the vendors (Level3, AT&T, Verizon, BT, NTT, etc.), agnostic of everything (protocol, address, etc.) except for RFC1918 addresses (shouldn't allow them out or feed them to me) and DSCP (if I set the bit(s) for low delay (for VoIP for example), I want that respected,and have those packets prioritized).
English is a difficult enough language to interpret correctly when its rules are followed, let alone when a writer chooses not to follow those rules.

Jeopardy! replies and randomcaps REALLY suck!

I've had this connection for 2.5 years. It's entirely possible that it's been down. If so it's never been during active usage.
