Re: Points on your Internet driver's license
In most states, the power company cannot connect service to a home or business until it has been inspected by a building inspector... This is to keep the number of fried customers to the lower possible value. And yes, it is possible to do your own power box work, but expect the inspector to be very thorough if you aren't also a licensed electrician. So, who's checking these local LAN's to make sure they don't melt or burst into flame once hooked up?
In this aspect, the ISP is providing the connection on the WAN side, not the LAN side.
Unless you're paying $400 for them to install an $80 wireless system or some such, in which case I'll do it for $200 ;)
