Fake because, it's really $53/month with taxes and fees. Because of the modem and ATA rental charges which are required.
Sonics gives you no option to buy the equipment (or use your own).
Apparently their support is great. But I HATE HATE HATE bait and switch with unbridled passion.
While I understand their need to regulate the equipment they use, they should at least allow us to purchase it (instead of renting) to make the $40/month + taxes and fees number real. Or just say $53 + taxes and fees and be done with it.
Because I can't really get the $40/month rate. It's just not real.
