DSL rates and availability from Covad

For what it's worth (not much to home users):

If you are in a building already lit by Cogent (and there are a
bunch around Boston and Cambridge, Somerville and Waltham, see ) they will charge
under $1000 per month for a 100 Mb/s ethernet connection. If you
sign for a year at a time, installation is generally waived and
the price comes down a bit further.

If your business is in one of their lit buildings and can afford
it, I highly recommend it. I also highly recommend having a
second ISP to deliver service -- Speakeasy DSL, or one of the
cablecos, or VZ FIOS.


-- is hereby incorporated by reference.

You can't defend freedom by getting rid of it.
