[Discuss] Internet Connectivity

Rick, you are absolutely correct.  I was running several calculations on a 
spreadsheet and grabbed the wrong amount. I should have caught that.  $24 would 
be the cost for January if we went with a 24 month term.  The monthly cost per 
person after January would be $9.57

Kevin, is the math on the remaining months correct?  If I do $66.95 / 7 people I 
get just under $10 per person per month.  Where did the $24 per person come 
Also, keep in mind if we break the contract and cancel before the 12 or 24 
months then we would be liable for 75% of the remaining months bills.
