:=They are most definitely local, Shallowford Rd. Marietta.  They are not

Looking at their prices, they want to charge an additional $10 per month for
a single static IP and $70 per month for 5 static IPs for residential users.
For Business users they want to charge $40 per month for 1 static IP, $60
for 5, $80 for 13 and $120 for 29 static IPs.

Compare this to Speakeasy's SysAdmin package for $10/month extra you get 2-4
Static IPs for the comparable service.  Maybe I'm wierd, but I don't like it
when I see a company doing some obvious gouging on their prices for things
like this.
