    Over charge by some 100% in France they only pay some $40 and get 26
    TV channels also.


    I think that Slingshot does it for $60


    Do more research before you post Crap again..

    Slingshot will not give good service. They will be doing serious
    bandwidth limiting during normal hours. They advertise that they
    prioritise traffic. Their offer is for no cap, full speed, but not
    what that full speed might actually be. My last experience with them
    was so bad that I would never be sucked in by any offer from them
    again.

    Compass is also offering phone service in that $99.95 price. Without,
    it is $79.95. I have never used Compass, but they have a much better
    reputation than Slingshot. Even so, they are carefully not saying how
    slow it might get at times, and they are very up front that they may
    be prioritising traffic.

    best??? I didn't, I simply posted a news item other might be interested
    in.

    I would never use Slingshot - I've never liked the greedy swines who own
    it. The one person I know / help who did recently change to them has had
    various problems right from signing up. After signing her up for a
    promotion, they then claimed she wasn't eligible, then it took three or
    four weeks to actually get the connection set-up and working properly
    (first the Internet worked, but the phone didn't, then vice-versa, then
    neither).

    No ISP will give an actual speed figure these days. They all say "full
    speed" or "as fast as your line allows". Some of them got burnt giving
    speeds figures that simply couldn't be achieve in some places due to
    Telecom's hopeless infrastructure, distance from the exchange, etc.

    Do we need a posting of bad news about a over priced IP, no I don't
    think so..

    You're wasting your time. Roger is just another of the of the MANY 8 year
    old morons that infest the Internet who obeys the sticker on their modem
    that says: "Switch brain off before use". :-\
