Re: Incompetent technician cut off my Internet!
said by Inssomniak:+1. If your livelihood depends on internet service to make a living...ALWAYS have a backup...Hell, a company I worked for back in 2000 had their almighty T1 and the super duper 128k ISDN line because my boss the IT manager said "You know it may cost us extra money, but I don't want to incur the wrath of the CEO if he can't get his email...." I believe the ISDN line was about $200/month if memory serves me correctly where we had a Burstable T1 that cost about $800 or so a month, maybe $1k...anywho...
This thread is hilarious.
I've said it before, I'll say it again, anyone relying on Internet for income should always have 2 sources on 2 different physical mediums regardless if it's at a house or business (or apartment). I have 3 myself.
Sometimes its that "indirect cost" that makes it worth it in situations like this....nothing is infoulable....we are human and are therefore prone to error...
Would it suck for me if Bell came and actively killed my service? Sure, would that mean I couldn't check my work email and schedules and stuff? Sure...but I pay $53/month taxes included...which is about $1.70/day...
If I wanted redundancy, I'd pay the extra $53/month for a second service in my apartment...ultimately though its up to the OP to decide....and again TSI would be happy to credit you or adjust the billing date as they did in my case once the service is up and running....so again, its up to you.
