I wouldn't call that "relatively easy". But we don't (and wouldn't) do that
anyway. Our customers are not fools. They are happy if they get a modem and
a connection every time. If they didn't, they would not be happy and would go
to our competitors. Is it hard to believe that somebody might try to do it right in
order to have a good name in the market they serve and so be successful?
