We're toying with the idea of a low bitrate 'lifeline' internet on our cable system, maybe even bundled with a certain
level of cable service.
First question, if you happen to be doing something like this, what bit rates are you providing.
Second question, though 'real' internet customers all get real IP's, what would you think of doing something like this
with 'large scale' nat instead. Understand, we're only talking about basic internet, something like a 256k/96k (or
similar) connect, not something that would be used by a serious user. (One thing we are looking at is some older dial
up users we still have, most of which could go onto cable just fine but don't want to pay the price).
Also when I say large scale, I doubt I'd have more than a few thousand customers for this. We're not a large ISP/cable
company by any means.
