The Netspace person I have been dealing with has been *really* helpful.
$TELCO has taken three days to "remove speed codes" from my line. This
should have happened the same day that $TELCO killed my account. (My
new account was set up beforehand)

They also mentioned that I may need to change VPI/VCI settings on my $TELCO
ADSL modem before it will work (we'll see...).

I was astounded to discover my aunt only uses 20 Mb of traffic
each month (!). At home, the house goes through Gb of traffic each
month thanks to Anime fanatics, apt-get and such. I am currently
moving from $TELCO to Netspace because they are offering 7Gb more
data than $TELCO for the same price.
