Poll: How Often Do You Turn Off the Power to Your Internet Connection?
Authored by: happyjaxx on Oct 04, '07 12:19:10PM

As for a few others, my ADSL connection serves various services besides "The Web"... VoIP (totally unbundled line, ADSL only on the wire, so no tone at all)... and TV (Actually recording a show on the PVR while watching another using integrated the DVB tuner)...

I would have added another option to the poll, like "ADSL-dependant Telephone service, so I've gotta keep it on...".

Cheers :-)

JaXX,
ISP: Free in France, unbundled and uncapped ADSL2+ synced at 24Megs ;-)

I have VoIP via Orange in France, and turn mine off at night. No one's going to call during the night, and if they do I have voice mail.

NORMALLY, no one calls you at night. But when someone actually does call, it's usually not normal and you'd probably want to take the call. This is one reason for having 24/7 phone service, in case someone calls you with an emergency.
