That is a very weird pricing structure. You're paying $.006/mb now,
and additional is $.039/mb? The 30mb plan only looks good when
compared with the $.039. I'd call and ask what the concept is...
Mike Leber's the big chiz. (Don't say I sent you ;-)

Yep, I've found their service excellent too, as opposed to all the
other hosts I've used, which varied from inept to horrific.
