Wow, even I'm doing backflips.

Advise them to save some money and go to Verizon's 768k DSL pacakage.

They'll love you, and you'll love them not having outrageous speeds going to waste

That's 25 Mb/s... not MB/s. I was actually anxious for once

I love being in New York.



$60 (+$300 installation) a month. That's just internet though, cable is about $240 a month for all three services. I would give up 20Mb/s down on this connection if I could get 80Mb/s down and 35Mb/s up
