Re: How slow is TWC?

said by BiggA:

How bad is TAC that this is actually appealing? I have 25/4 on Comcast, and it's soon going to 50/10, leaving anything DSL can do in the DUST.

It's not just the speed, it's the price: 15/1 is $60, 20/2 is $70, 30/5 is $80 and 50/5 is $90. If you have a small business (say a retail store or something) it's even more ridiculous: 10/1 is $120, 15/2 is $240, 35/5 is $276 and 50/5 is $360.

Our TWC rates are about half those you cite for the same speeds, so Fusion harder to justify, even before you consider the throes of dealing with AT&T's deluxe copper.

That is kind of insane. I'm paying around $65 (not including the new customer deal I'm on right now) for 25/4, soon to be 50/10 on Comcast.

Getting 25/4 isn't as important to me as the phone frills (AT&T would charge me an extra $28 a month for them), static IP address (AT&T Internet price would double for this), delegation of reverse IP, the explicit permission to run servers, and a low-cost DNS zone for my domain. Neither Comcast, nor TWC will provide all of that for anything short of business class price.

Landline phone? What's that? lol. I guess a static IP is one thing, although at this point in the game, why are you running servers locally?

Because I can.
