Re: This is why you configure modems for RFC1483 bridging
Had fun poking an AT&T door-to-door salesman who was just insisting I **HAD** to get their new fiber at double my current price for less mb/sec.
First, he kept quoting the 6-mos promo price, so I kept prodding until he finally grudgingly told me the standard price, at which point I told him my current deal.
Then he insisted AT&T fiber was much better, so I told him "I'd have Google fiber, if you people weren't suing them specifically to stop it" and he argued about that, so I told him "google the at&t one-touch-make-ready lawsuit" and he shut up.
Then I told him "well $CURRENT_ISP lets me use my own cable modem & router/firewall, and AT&T won't..."
Dude started foaming at the mouth so hard, his partner with him left to wait in the truck.
I have not had a salesman scream at me like that in a long time. Felt good.
