Comcast's best friend in this is Verizon. I had scheduled a move to
FOIS, but cancelled when I learned that Verizon blocks many incoming
ports, and although I can re-direct web and FTP traffic to other
ports, that's a game I'd rather not play. Verizon can also block other
ports, once they detect activity they don't like. I cancelled. I don't
understand this behavior by Verizon at all. The relationship betwenn
the customer and Verizon should be deadly simple: I pay for a
connection, and then use it however I want (like I do now). Verizon
limits speeds up and down, and that's their way of controlling network
saturation. Then I learned they don't allow servers, either. What a
joke. I pay for a connection, and they determine how I use it? No
chance. Wake up, Verizon!

FWIW, I only want to use web and FTP services to share digital pics
with my family, and it's way more convenient than trying to constantly
e-mail huge files.
