Oh, I didn't realize there was a requirement for a one-year commitment. 
There is a $20 fee to start service, but that would be 3/4 offset by
getting one month of service for "free".  Due to past experience with
instability, the one-year commitment is scary.  If I try the service
again, I would be very watchful of any problems during the 30-day
guarantee period.
