I think the guardian angel that handles my internet portfolio nudged me to review the different DSL packages available for my house at The Sabine Farm. A quick call to my provider netted me, yet again, an increase in both my upload and download speeds at no increase in my monthly billing. Not only that, but, just as it happened last summer when I went through this drill and got an increase for zero rise in cost, the speed change occured about five minutes after the phone call was concluded.
"But Father, but Father!", you might be asking, "Why do you need faster access at The Sabine Farm when you are going back to Rome again so soon??"
I do a lot of remote access to the Sabine Computer(s) where I can store many useful things. I also use a SlingBox to access my satellite dish and watch the Sabine TV from my perch above the City. Thus, fast upload is a very good thing.
It pays to call your provider once in a while just to find out what they can do for you at no cost to yourself or for a reduction in your bill.
