Re: Exageration
No kidding! On a weight basis, printer ink is definitely up there with gold and other luxury items, for sure... It's almost as expensive as some pharmaceuticals. 

I tossed all my inkjet printers and went with laser printers.. toner doesn't dry up.

Re: Exageration
@batye there is an upside to having a setting that retains some older tech around.

Re: Exageration
@mhhf1ve especially if it was HP ink! That must have been quite a cleanup job!

Re: Exageration
Your comment about the cost of printer ink reminds me of an accident where a truckload of printer ink spilled on a highway, and observers joked that it must have been millions of dollars of ink....

The digital divide in North America is leaving millions without adequate broadband. Incumbents operate in “islands” of connectivity, serving densely populated areas and, at a national scale, perpetuating the digital divide in the gaps in between their service footprints. Regional ISPs have a clear role in closing that gap.

These regional ISPs operate in a highly fragmented landscape, including smaller wireless and FTTH incumbents, satellite ISPs, electric co-ops, tribal communities, and municipalities in public/private partnerships. These regional ISPs face the same cyber threats and operational challenges as their Tier 1 counterparts, but with far fewer resources and revenue-generating population density. As a result, many regional ISPs have developed highly innovated business models for access and core technology, partnerships, financing and services.

The discussion will cover:

  • Three ISPs that have taken an innovative approach to their business, as detailed in a recent STL Partners report
  • Why regional ISPs need to double down on core security basics such as DDoS protection
  • How ISPs have created new revenue by offering managed services
  • Core network capabilities required for IPv4-IPv6 management
