Question

Do I Really Need RoadRunner?

Hi. I have been connecting to the Internet for several years using Road Runner and a cable box. Recently I bought Apple's Time Capsule and use that as a wireless router, plugging it into the cable box with an Ethernet cable and using Airport. It occurs to me I may not need Road Runner at all. If so, can anyone walk me through the process?

I was thinking

Clear Wire, or possibly Cricket

That will get you some internet.

Many try that and discover it works for a few hours, drops, comes back as well as lower speeds as you hit so many bytes. It does work, but in a clunky clanging sound sort of way.

Ah, well, it was worth a try

Thanks. I suspect I will keep my RoadRunner for now. I just wish there were a way to reduce all the boxes I seem to acquire. The RR modem plus the Time Capsule seems overkill, and I'd love to reclaim the top of my nightstand....
