Unfortunately there isn't much of a deal to strike on the term.  The one
year term isn't part of the special it is unfortunately something we can't
really get out of.  We have to contract for the local loop on a one year
term so if we don't pass that liability on then we are stuck paying for
the line after you move.

I'm not sure you can really get DSL anywhere with less than a one year
term and not pay for it up front. SBC will do month to month but there is
a setup fee ($50 to $200 depending on what they do) and a charge of $400
if you want a router (and $100 for a bridge).

Well unlike most providers we don't use bridging for our DSL installs so
unless you are wanting to run servers on the backside you really don't
need to have more than one IP address.  Instead of bridge we use a router
that will do NAT and DCHP on the connection so you can have as many
computers on the backside as you want (well 253 actually).

If you really must have more than one IP address we certainly have
business packages that include more.  If they are justified according to
ARIN policies we can route as many IP addresses as you legimately need
over the connection.
