    if they say anything i will ask for the outrageous monthly fees they demand to provide me with their sporadic 50mbps services and no-name korean shit dsl docsis 3 modems.

    also TWC / RR uses Sun hardware and Solaris to operate their networks. They still have 10 years experience to obtain before they can do things on that platform close to what I wrote the code 15 years ago to permit them to do.

    https://airvpn.org. $5.00/month for an encrypted VPN with no bandwidth limits and no logging permitted by their local laws.

    i live by my internet connection. when it goes down, i cannot work or earn income. I can't have anyone snooping on my connections when i am connected to our offices (its federal law that we have FIPS 140-2 encryption end to end).

    that's because they see your connection to steam which they know and understand is a bandwidth hog so they don't think you are downloading movies torrents. transfer 205gb via bittorrent and watch how fast you get a note.
