Currently, the $$$ our ISP pays to get 128 Kbps connectivity is enough to get more than a dozen T1's in the US, and even a T3 perhaps. And people ask here why they can't get unlimited access for $20 monthly. On the other hand, labor costs are cheap --- among the biggest customers for E1 lines to the US are offshore programming houses. So how about a bandwidth for workforce swap? :) -- miguel a.l. paraz <email@example.com> iphil communications, makati city, tech problems, to <firstname.lastname@example.org> philippines. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
