Where's the OREO adapter? I mean with the costs of data caps you're just better buying oreos off costco. How many oreos 1 GB is? We need answers. mad.gif

This pisses me off. ISP's are a HUGE pain in the balls. We aren't offered fiber at all in our area either, so we get screwed with 50 Meg for 40-50 a month. Something needs to be done, and this Oreo analogy shouldn't excuse anything at all. It's not professional, and it's worded as if everybody's a bunch of five year olds.

There are people who are more sensitive to bitter flavors than others..

I am one of them, the Oreo outer cookies are indeed bitter to me as well..


That said, once tongue hits the cream middle, it balances out. biggrin.gif

Oreos are now serious business, literally. biggrin.gif

Since when can you buy Oreo's from only 2 places in your region and since when can they come in an steal any unused portions from you?

When you have a choice in ISPs you can switch.

Using my full 50Mbs bandwidth constantly would only take 11.1 hours to meet my 30 day 250GB data cap. 11 hours is 1.53% of 30 days.
Upgrading to 75Mbs and 350GB cap would only take 10.4 hours. 1.44% of 30 days.

So I searched the competition. There is only one other company and their offerings are worse. It would cost the same price, have slower speeds, and I would be locked in a contract for 2 years. (currently no contract).


We do have different cookie brands to buy, and different grocers to buy from, not always so with ISPs
