	Incidentally you know you can get limited phone service for
 only $10 a month. You are only allowed to make X number of
outcalls or incalls but its fine for dsl service. So w/ digizip
that worked out to $45 ($45 + $10 for phone) for 1.5 down / 768 up for
me when I used to use them. Actually if i recall it was was a bit
more than that because of all the taxes, I want to say my bill from
digizip was $51 (this includes 5 static ips and no blocked ports) and my 
bill from verizon was like 12 or 13. (This was about a year ago)

I switched to verizon/dsl when I moved because I didn't think I needed the 
bandwidth, now I realize I do :)
