    And I pay $72 for Basic plan of download at 1.0 Mbps, upload at 200 Kbps and a max of 200 MB every 24 hours. Of course from 2 am to 6 am I get unlimited download and upload. Only thing they have at present being on the fringe of wireless range out here in the boonies.

    And Ringel, you should put quotes around that, I though you were saying that you paid $99 but your not in New Yawk.
