DSL Rate

        I just figured out that someone asked me how much I was paying for my DSL
from Qwest. Forgive me, but I can't find who the original poster was.

        Anyway: Base rate for the line is $29.95/mo. Round to $30.

                Add to that $35/mo for Qwest.net (the ISP) to be the host. Includes web
space (which I no longer use) and mailboxes (which I won't be using much

        Finally, tack on $15/mo for a private block of eight static IP's. Three
are reserved to be the network, gateway, and broadcast addresses for my
subnet (I'm subnetted off a class A block), and five are user-definable,
function-wise. Subtract one more for the router interface, and that leaves
me four usable.

        Total: A little under $80/month for everything, and that includes a
guaranteed data rate of 256K down (I get 384 during rainy weather, and 512K
during dry), and 272K up.

        If anyone knows of another ISP that can give me my own subnet for
$50/month or less, and equivalent bandwidth, please say so. ;-)

        Hope that helps.
