Day 3 with Qwest

My hot new DSL connection from has now officially exceeded my expectations. I consistently get the full available bandwidth both ways at any time of day or night, and I can run gnutella again without taking a performance hit on other connections — gnutella even runs more smoothly and can handle more open connections! So does BitTorrent. And so does this Web server. Overall you can rate me quite impressed. The only problem I’ve had so far is the inability to set reverse DNS, which seems to be some sort of technical glitch with Qwest’s web-based control panel. And I can live without that until it gets sorted out.

Again, that’s $28.00 for the circuit, $9.95 for the ISP (Qwest Choice Internet Basic; you have to ask for it by name if you’re a residential customer), and $5.95 for the static IP address. Total monthly charge is $43.90. Not bad. I’m saving $15 bucks, and getting much better service.

If you don’t need a static IP address to run services (or have no idea what they are in the first place!) then try Qwest Choice DSL Deluxe 1.5M for residential customers instead.
