[TriLUG] thinking about RR Biz again.

One word of warning, I called and they told me it was going to cost
$110.00 a month... by the time I got it installed and all the fees were
applied, it came out more like $120.00 a month and they require you to
sign a one year contract. I recently needed to cancel my biz class as I
couldn't really afford that price any longer nor did I really need it, and
they are now telling me I will be required to pay the balance of the
contract even after I returned the modem and cancelled my service. So, I'm
out roughly $700 for something I'm not even using...
When I was in Wilmington, they allowed me to terminate my contract before
the year was up with no penalty... I'm pretty ticked off currently... I've
made several attempts to contact my biz rep from TW with no response.
I would suggest looking into some alternative provider before going with
the local TWC biz service.

Looking at RR's business page (http://www.twcbroadband.com/solutions/promotional.cfm) it seems that in order to get a static IP address I have to go with at least the 3x384 Professional service (3 meg download, 384k upload). However the way the biz page reads it almost sounds like the professional class is a hosted solution, which I do not want.
