With that difference of course that I would put Speakeasy into the generally
'good' category (running servers and sharing of dsl via wifi explicitly
*allowed*, all ports open; all this on *every* line they sell; support with a
clue), whereas I would classify Comcast under generally 'evil' (monopolistic
behaviour; M$ centric; etc). Of course, this is entirely subjective :)

That being said, Speakeasy is not cheap. But if your internet connection is
going to be a business expense, that probably won't matter much.

Amen :)
