Agreed -- I think it's unfortunate that we ended up with a special
NATed configuration. The only times that we've had problems with this
connection has been when Monkeybrains has been doing work on their NAT
box.

For the $/Mbit, it's not bad, but it's not great either. $75/month
seems expensive for what it is.

I've mostly kept the noisebridge network running over Sonic only
because it seems more reliable. Unfortunately, our copper must suck
since we get nowhere near the ~20 Mbit that we should theoretically be
able to get.

As much as I hate the corporate entity behind it, I'd much rather have
a Comcast Business class (totally different BU than the residential
stuff) circuit at 2169.

I think we should pay Monkeybrains for the circuit if we can stop
having crappy NAT (and hopefully a static IP).
