We changed ISP providers from MYINTERNET to Connexus last year, our costs
were reduced by approximately a $1000.00 per month and the filtering and
response time has been very good.  Very few hiccups in the changeover.

Subject: ISP's


Our contract with the ISP has just expired and I was hoping that I could get
some advice and contact details with regards to ISPs. Currently we have a
data cap of 20 gig a month. Our current monthly bill includes link rental,
router/firewall rental and 20 gig of data.  We run off a microwave link and
it is costing us in the vicinity of $4000 a month. We have a 2Mbps symmetric
upload and download speed. Is this a reasonable amount to pay per month - or
are there better deals around? 


We would not want to reduce our upload and download speed and our local
telephone exchange can only handle 512k.

In terms of the microwave link - I am not sure why the College has not
explored other options. What else is available?

Any help would be much appreciated.
