Internet Update

So just to keep a running history of this stuff really, I ditched Sonic a couple of months ago for Comcast "Business" internet service. I already get cable tv from them, four cablecards that have been miraculously trouble-free (knock on wood). So adding 12mbps internet service and voice turned out to be cheaper than the DSL from Sonic and POTS from AT&T. I keep the pots line because I am old and afraid of the end of the world, and also because I am nutty enough to run Nagios and Qpage at home. So by saving $20/mo I get to basically depend on Comcast for every communication channel not controlled by AT&T. Yay. Anyway, here is the magic numbers. I didn't even bother getting off wireless so its probably a bit low but at this point who cares?




Of course, at work, I just turned up a gigabit metro ethernet point to point; but running another one to the house would probably run a few kilobucks too much.

comcast cable bundles are awesome until the construction guys next door get your line caught on their stupid illegal oversized dumptruck and decide rather than untangling it they should just cut it and take off.
