I just found out that my Internet service provider sells its services on a lifetime basis. For a $300 lump-sum payment, I will never have to worry about quarterly service fees OR domain registration for my website again. Should I take this deal?
On the one hand, I am a classic absent-minded professor. Two fewer recurring cares for life would be a blessing.
On the other hand, the company’s service is already far from perfect, and the lifetime fee is non-refundable.
What do you think, Econlog readers?
