Re: [vox] Fwd: Internet Services In Davis

Well, I missed part of this discussion while my email was down (not  
the service I'm about to recommend, so no wisecracks please :) but I  
have to put in my two cents' worth for Omsoft. Run by geeks for  
geeks. Caps? What's that? I run bittorrent constantly for days and  
sometimes weeks on end and never have a problem. I'm running a web  
server as well. No, it doesn't get much traffic, but never heard a  
peep from them. And I like their customer service.

I also like the fact that I can bike or walk two blocks to their  
office on 5th and just walk in and talk to them. Who needs a phone? :)

This is ADSL of course.

Good luck with your search, whatever you decide.
