My wife runs a non-profit org, and managed to flex her non-profit org mojo  
apparently very effectively in negotiating a much more reasonable price  
than I was expecting. It's still definitely in the "business class" price  
range, but it's livable. Think "car payment" rather than "house payment",  
to give a ballpark.

The service comes with a Samsung Ubigate router. I've been considering  
reading up on how to configure that to handle all our needs (it has 2  
Ethernet ports, and it claims to be a fully-featured fw/router, so it  
might just be possible to point one of those Ethernet ports at the DSL  
modem), but where's the fun in that? I'd much rather get elbow-deep in  
some real Linux action than grovel through documentation designed for  
someone who has spent $Ks on single-purpose certification.
