Thanks to everyone who replied to this thread. What can I expect to pay
for Data only with Sonic.net? For data + voice? Thanks again.
Also, I am concerned about the fact that the customer must rent a modem
from Sonic.net, and cannot buy it outright. Seems like a waste over the
life of the modem, and a hidden cost. Any thoughts?
