RE: ATTBI refuses to do reverse DNS?

Please define cheap.
Oh yeah! I can opt for a 56K (frame relay) circuit for only $250 setup and
$350/month plus another $125/month if my local loop is under 10 miles plus
~$500 for the hardware.
That's $1225 the first month and $475/month after that. Yeah, Joe Consumer
(me) is going to be willing to cough that up for 56K. Typical 768K DSL
speeds pumps the cost to $500 setup and $850/month plus the $125 minimum for
a local loop. We're into house payment territory now. :)
Just my 2¢. The delete key is your friend.

I would guess it would start with them looking at the businesses
which provide service in their area. If all they want is the lowest
cost provider, I would ponder the following:
Cheap, Fast, Good, pick any two.
There certainly are alternatives to Cheap, Fast, !Good providers. They
may just be Cheap, !Fast, Good, or !Cheap, Fast, Good.
