After whole days of hassle, I have gotten AceDSL to resell me some Verizon DSL at half that speed. (Blah blah line length cakes. Sorry, but not every fucking line in the city can be 3 miles from the central office. Well, technically it can, but it would take some seriously fucked-up routing.)
I have asked them for some sort of discount or extra to compensate for the suck
Which server-friendly internet option sucks least?
Covad T1: 16 IPs, 1.5/1.5 @ $400/mo
Comcast Business: 1 IP, 6/.768 @ $95/mo + $250
AceDSL: 1 IP, .768/.768 @ $60/mo
I have a cunning plan (and will post it in a comment).
(Note: I write server software for fun, but experience has proven that I only do it when I remember to: i.e., when it is running on a machine I physically look at every day. It's important to me to get a server-friendly ISP in place rather than stay stuck with Linode.)
