Just as a matter of intrest(if you dont mind,please dont answer if you dont want to)
RPM how much is this site costing a month and whos paying for it?
Up to now the site did not cost too much since I know the owner of the hosting company. Unfortunately the bandwidth usage is too high and I will move to a normal hosting company soon. The hosting costs are not exorbitant. The major expenses at this stage are most probably traveling, phone calls etc. in negotiations and communications with the media and other organisations. I always try to keep MyADSL’s image professional, and in correspondence I usually use courier services which is rather costly. I am paying for all the expenses of the site, and will continue to do so.
It is great to see so many members making a contribution to this site, and I believe MyADSL serves a much needed purpose. Money is not really a consideration for me when it comes to projects like these. On a more philosophical note, I believe it is healthy to involve yourself in some project where you do not stand to capitalize directly through your involvement. It is excellent to see so many members (like yourself) doing this. You guys offer a great deal of time and knowledge in order to improve the ADSL service for thousands of people. The little money spent in maintaining this service does not come close to comparing to this!

Hi SK33T and Oblix
I truly appreciate your generosity and dedication towards MyADSL. It is encouraging to see that there are still people like you around that are not only out to capitalize for their own benefit, but is willing to assist in a worthwhile cause. At this stage I really do not need any financial or hosting assistance. I am financially fairly secure and can cover all costs with relative ease.
If MyADSL continue to grow and is becoming a financial burden for only one person to carry, I will discuss options with our members. Thanks again for your offers. I never expected a group of such brilliant individual to be members of MyADSL. The activity in the forums indicates that people are willing to freely share their knowledge and experience with others. This was one of my main aims when opening MyADSL. We must obviously also achieve our goal of improving the service, but people are already benefiting from MyADSL…excellent!
