Re: Not necessarily the result of Google

Actually, I found exact numbers from HKBN.

1Gbps + Telephone + TV = USD $68/mo

24 month contract, comes with FREE Samsung GALAXY Note II LTE (16GB), as well as a FREE gigabit 802.11N router (DIR-655).

$68 * 24 = $1632

-$600 for the VPS...

DVR? Just get a bloody NAS drive. A DS112J will run you $150, a 2TB drive is another $100. $350 for a complete home NAS that can act as whatever the fuck you want to to act as. Need a media endpoint? $100 can get you a roku or an Apple TV. Still need a proper DVR? I'm sure HKBN would be happy to rent you one, and I doubt it would cost more than $200 USD for the 24 months of rental with the prices HKBN charges.

To sum it up: The same or lower price as Google can get you:
1Gbps
Telephone
TV
Samsung GALAXY Note II LTE (16GB)
Gigabit router with 802.11N
2TB Synology NAS
1TB offsite VPS
Apple TV or Roku
A DVR of some sorts

With Google:
1Gbps
TV
Nexus 7
1TB offsite storage
2TB DVR thingy

Boom. Next argument please.
