Re: [vox] Fwd: Internet Services In Davis

He raises a good point about the capping of filesharing type stuff. Though I only have ~40k up, I run a home webserver (on top of linux iso distribution), and messing with the torrents would be annoying, say nothing of actually haveing enough bandwidth for the server :P

Last I saw the official att rate for residential 3.0ish line was 30-35, may be higher/lower now.

I am considering moving to sonic if at&t tries to test their network filtering(such as comcast did( the bittorrent rst packet snafu with sandvine)). Their PR guy said earlier this year in a speach that they were going to do internal mini tests of the filtering, to see if any of it was feasable at a whole-network scale. If they decide it is, I'll be finding a new ISP :D

Looks like you need at&t residential service, which is $28/month and sonic's 3-6mbit service is $35/month, but it says thats the introductory rate, I can't find the normal rate, anyone have any input? also are anyones torrents being capped, dropped, or anything like that?> Date: Wed, 19 Mar 2008 16:20:01 -0700> From: nbs@sonic.net> To: vox@lists.lugod.org> Subject: Re: [vox] Fwd: Internet Services In Davis> > On Wed, Mar 19, 2008 at 09:53:49AM -0700, Gandalf Parker wrote:> > I am also amazed at their MOTD.
