I'm hearing bad rumors about the telephone service.  How's that part
of your service been?

The pricing is great.  I'm signed to get MStar/Utopia installed this Tuesday.  I'm
opting for a limited package with internet with a 2 gig monthly cap and standard
phone service (long distance on a $.04/min. basis) at $42 + $5 tax =$47/mo.  That
will average about $3 more per month than I currently pay for Qwest phone and
56k dialup internet.  Before I commit to a year contract to get the free install I'd
like to know more about the phone service reliability.  Any comments from anyone
with experience with MStar/Utopia would be greatly appreciated.  I still have until
Friday to back out of the install.  Veracity won't be announcing any limited service
packages until next month.  Right now they're offering $70/mo. unlimited phone
and internet package.

It said use windows 95 or better so I loaded linux!
In a world without walls and fences who needs windows and gates?
