Re: Skype's Founder To Offer Free Web Access for Homes So, I signed up... I'll keep you guys updated how it goes, unless there is a better place.
First, the timer starts right away, as soon as I clicked "activate button" although I won't get the modem for about a week. A little annoying.
I don't see a way to opt out of this premium service. Actually, I don't know what this premium service includes. So, it's $4/mo after first free month unless I figure it out during first month. Even if I don't - it's OK. I can afford it.
There was "1 GB extra for today". Well - it worked the same the next day as well.
I am not planning to use it at home. So, I probably not going to keep it on. Still - I didn't see either 5mb minimum; nor 1MB heartbeat. We'll see how it goes
Quick Update: just got a note that they shipped the modem; also noticed that they are walking distance from my home... I could pick it up on my way from work
