For $65, you get a static IP with 1.5Mbit/128kbit from Tsoft/raw bandwidth
When pacbell doesn't disconnect my line, it works just fine :-)
Unless you need 5 IPs, please do not buy the $80 enhanced service, it
validates their screwing us over removing the static IP from the $40 plan
(and their $40 plan is unfair competition because Tsoft has to pay $40 just
for the Pacbell DSL line, and then they charge $25 for their bandwidth.
PacBell used to charge $40 for the line and $10 for the bandwidth (which
they would lose money on) and now they reduced the ISP side to $0 a month.
Talk about fair competition...
