Yes, Portland, Maine was a "test run" for the RoadRunner Cable Internet service. We've had T-3 speeds since 1999.
It's a great system, although kind of pricey at 45$ a month.
We've got 5 computers hooked to it, in our living room. I've been wanting to post some photos of our set-up.
The wife and I are "total geeks". We're Macintosh only, but we can emulate the Windows environment if we need to.
3 Imacs, and an older Macintosh model. The fastest machine is only 600mz, but we added 256 + 128 megs of ram to it.
Although my wife and I use Mac at home, we both work in 'systems' at UNUM, so we solve PC stuff all day. If anyone ever needs help with something, we can probably figure it out.
Have fun, thanks again for posting that link!
