Re: Microsoft offering xDSL access
Has anyone actually used the USWest/Phoenix xDSL? I was suggesting to my boss, only half jokingly, that we subscribe to a few $120 a month xDSL "Business User" lines to USWest for fun, add on the $20/month internet connection, and find out how oversubscribed !nteract really is. "We don't know anything about the Internet, we're just mindless consumers. Oops, how'd that hssi port get in there?" -h : First of all, there are two different kinds of xDSL service one can buy. : One is a subscriber side, and the other side is a server side (which US West : calls MegaSubscriber/MegaOffice/MegaBusiness and MegaCentral respectively). [..] : As for what US West tends to do with the bandwidth, they have an unregulated : division called !nteract that will take care of that part. It is : my understanding that !nteract will advertise directly following US West : commercials, but US West must still give you the choice of your IP provider : when you order it from them. Here's the kicker...!nteracts price is just : $20/month.
