I'm looking at my Cable bill of roughly $50/month just
for internet access and wondering if it would be better
to get the bundle of services from Aliant.
In checking out their conditions, I see this:
Unlimited Service for an account does not translate into
allowing an account holder to remain connected even while
away from the computer or to use a 'ping' type program to
keep their connection alive, such as, but not limited to,
checking email every 5 minutes 24 hours a day).
I have a couple of accounts at home that are being fed
with fetchmail every few minutes. I didn't think this would
be excessive in contrast with running a server or using
the current P2P stuff. Can anyone with experience running
Aliant's DSL service comment on what the real world picture is?
