    It's early in the game, but I'm starting to have second thoughts about how I think most are on broadband..

    56k here because we simply have no other choices. As far back (and on top) of the smokies, we're lucky to have phone lines :p . Well, there actually is one choice that I recently checked on (satelite). $400 install (even if I can install it myself, they require it for startup) and $84 a month for the speed at which I was looking. Anyways, let's just say "Not a chance in hell at that one!" I would be more than happy to pay cable or other high speed prices if they were simply available to us country bumpkins :lol:

    I know your pain. :) It took about a year of nearly daily calling to the cable company to get cable modem service to my area. The problem was that they didn't want to run data return lines across to my side of the highway. There are two gated rich-folk communities on this side of the highway though, and someone at the cable company must have seen the potential business. So around 1998 they finally did. According to the cable guy that worked around us, we were the ONLY house with cable modem service for a good 4 months, and then only a handful after that for a few years. I remember uploading at 800K/sec and just expecting it. Ahh had I only known to appreciate what I had... :)
