I agree, TWC service is pretty good. They already agreed to waive
termination fees if we move to a non-serviced area or if we shut down due to
We are a small startup. 3 years is a long time, things can change. Business

Since situation may change, we prefer not to be locked in.
Speakeasy DSL looks good. I will check with them. Their Ethernet service
requires 3 year commitment as well.
