The "Free" service doesn't cover your cost of support which is much higher
for residential than any business customer. Our residential customers call
at least 15x more often compared to business customers compared on a 1:1
I honestly can't fathom providing free residential service because we make
enough money on the business side of things. You should be charging
something, at least $20-30 per month.
