Agreed. I wasn't too impressed with it. The interface kinda sucks. I was
far more impressed with a dish-network contraption. But it's cheaper

I was told they reserved 20mbit for internets, and the rest for TV.

I get the pro download speeds. However I don't have the TeeVee. But when
I did have the tv, I got the pro download speeds. Again, FTTH may have
made a difference there. <rant>I will be very happy when they match
Verizon's deal. Verizon's got a 10mbit down/5mbit up package. I really
wish I could get verizon here, just for that. I am annoyed that
Verizon's TOS are more evil however. Att's are a bit better. They should
open up the fiber damnit.</rant>

It'd be good easy pay, heh. But I think I'd go insane as a level 1 tech
support agent. I would hate having to read the questions from teh book
when I know the solution :/
