I am also looking at them - I qualify with them also so let me know I already contacted them 12/19 and had them e-mail the contract. The sales rep didn't seem to know if they would be able to do anything but I am waiting to see if we can get a deal with them before doing anything more, one thing which would be nice would be a hot swap or a quick transition to avoid a prolonged downtime of 2 to 3 weeks.

keep up the great flow of info

I know I'm close to the Bellsouth Center, if they waive the 99 setup then I'd definately be in - till then I'm checking on Speakeasy and MSN.

Sales rep at Cyberonic promised me only 384/256 for $49. I'm 13550 ft. from CO. I'm in Chicago,Il. Had to go with Speakeasy. ...
I got the same quote, they said I'm 14500 feet away, but ALL the other ISP and DSLR also reports me at 12500.

Tech guy in Cyberonic told me that "Hot Swap" in one day it's bullshit, and he doesn't believe you can change it so fast. Anyone had experience?

It seems DTV may be giving some kind of blanket release/authorization to "certain" providers to do something like this. Speakeasy going through Covad and Covad itself seems to have this ability. I suspect either that cyberonic doesn't have this authorization or due to it being on the Worldcom backbone that is somehow handled differently. But, the anticipated downtime is definitely a big factor in my decision.

I'm more likely to go with the best price/most service/least downtime combination of factors I can find, then switch again later if need be.

I have one question regarding Cyberonic's 18-month pre-paid
plan. I understand you pay it all upfront about $700-800.

Is it like, what, you pay that huge sum one time and use
the service for 18 months without paying a dime monthly?
What happens in 18 months? You start paying monthly?
For how much?

I'm not sure but would suspect you would either negotiate a new contract at that time, go month to month or be free to change service (actually you would probably be free to change service at any time you desire....same as those on the month to month plan).

I've got a copy of the month to month agreement here if anyone wants to see the details. Would be interesting to see the terms of the other contract though.

Count me in as well. I have prequalified and have a contract in hand. I would really like it if the activation could be negotiated down.

Once you pre-paid for 18-month DSL service, you don't pay anything for 18 months. After that it will be whatever they offer then and what you decide to go with, it could be anything, lower/higher price, term or month-to-month.

I have already fetched it on the WorldCom forum.

And I was about to ask if anybody has the doc for
the pre-paid plan, instead of MTM.

It would be a huge saving in 18 months about $200
if you went for it. But I know it would be a risky
move. Saving or risk, that is the question.

Definitely interested in this. How would it work logistically? One point person would gather all info and present to Cyberonics? What about CC #s?

Count me in -- at least until Tuesday next week. I hated thinking about the 2-week downtime (or longer), but it sounds like we're getting the most bang for the buck with Cyberonics. I'm still wavering between Cyberonics and Covad's Telesoho (1500/384, static IP @$69.95) or Speakeasy's DirectSwitch Plus (1500/128, static @$59.95), but that's mainly because they both offer minimal downtime. I really like the U/L speed we're gonna get with Cyberonics (I'd even pay the full $99 activation - YIKES!) but I don't really want to be without broadband for so long. I hope to make a decision by Tuesday so I can have a new ISP by the beginning of January.
Thanks for all your efforts, AHaxton!

Dude! You can't be serious.
nobody was ever talking about 40/mo here, your barking up the wrong tree if you ever expected to get anything worthwhile for that pittance.

Yes, from them.

When I talked to Joe there he told me I needed to have my line free before I could sign-up first of all, at least if they will contact me and confirm I am a part of this deal and any action I need to take is sufficient for me as I think I understand how you have this thing working anyway.

The sooner they can confirm I am a part of this group and any action needed on my part the better I think (even if they don't have participation levels in place yet, I will take whatever they work out here myself, 50 or 100 I guess).

I wonder can Cyberonics do hot-swap?
What sux now is I cant get Adelphia Powerlink in my area which I would have liked while I am without DSL. For some reason I still think in my head I can get their cable internet but the local sales office says we dont even service your area even though we get their cable odd eh?

I wonder if I should just buy the self startup kit and see if it synchs and then I should be able to see if I can get it or not.

Re: hot swap

When I had words with them the other day, they said no, they can not do hot swaps.
