Interesting pricing scheme:

<u>Wireless Access Option 1</u>

11Mbit theoretical maximum service
Monthly fee $27.50
Installation fee $330

<u>Wireless Access Option 2</u>

56 Mbit theoretical maximum service
Monthly fee $27.50
Installation fee $1650

Alphalink's data charging structure is complex, with the plan's monthly 3GB of data broken up into three usage timezones as follows:

Super Peak 5pm - 1am: 200MB
Peak 8am - 5pm: 800MB
Off Peak 1am - 8am: 2000MB

Tweak, I dare ya to get the 56Mbit connection! :)

56Mbps..... that's faster than a T3 link!!! :eek:

But what's Alphalink's connection to the Internet? If it's less than 56Mbps of course you won't get that out of the service :(
