Default Re: DSL...The Nature Of The Beast

Thanks, I was afraid of that, since I only have one telephone line and can't afford another. However, I was reading about a new internet telephone service called Ooma, that provides a second line free. The catch is that they require you to buy a telephone hub from them that costs $400. I guess that in the long run it would be cheap enough.

The reason that this is an issue for me now, is because one change made with the buy out of the ISP is that instead of unlimited connection time, it is now only 350 hours a month, which I usually exceed. They don't just charge extra for the overtime, they suspend service til the next month.
