Earlier this week, I came across this post on Broadband Reports, which highlighted the recent trend in Europe of Barebones Broadband. Actually this is a pretty clever idea from companies which are selling the high-speed Internet service. Why? Take me as an example. I have SBC/Yahoo DSL but I have never used their portal or their email service. I have my own domain name and end up using that for my blog, my storage server, and also as my email server. I prefer it that way. I can move cities, carriers, continents … never have to bother with changing anything at any point. I am waiting for SyncML servers to come out, and that would make me more in control of my own information. Unlike me, there are others who have say a Hotmail account. And have a web presence via say, TypePad. They again don’t need the expensive and utterly ridiculous portals many of the broadband service providers try and put together. Like me, there is a market for some early adopters and complete newbies who don’t need to worry about the frills that come with say Comcast, Roadrunner or SBC DSL. I would gladly give up all the extras for a little discount or trade it in for more bandwidth. What do you folks think?

  1. Om, Hotspotvpn.com provides an encrypted tunnel through which your port 25 (outgoing email) traffic can pass without being blocked by the ISP.

  2. I having been waiting in vain for a user friendly syncML server – so if you ever find one — please let me know.

    I thought yahoo was going to introduce one, but… hopefuly the jack of all trades – google will come up with one.
