The burden on modern hardware are providers like my Road Runner
provider. They have clauses in their TOU that say no organization of any
kind, ... disconnect if use seems excessively outside that expected, ...
etc. Living in the boonies, where density is low, I get *great*
throughput. But I know if Bellsouth doesn't hurry up and get some (A)DSL
out here, providing some competition, Road Runner will probably throttle
me, figuring they can squeeze more $$ out of me.

They'll be wrong, but...
