    were I am at I have to use clearwire which is better then dial up but what makes me mad is two streets to the right of me is frontier DSL and three streets to the left of me is ATT DSL and neither of them want to come into my street as they dont want to step on each others toes >_< I am so pissed about that...

    WOW that really sucks

    only a few hundred feet from fast Internet


    AOL sent us a letter saying 768kbps was in our area, when I went to check it it wasn't even close

    well I know here in the states they with the analog signal being dropped that they want to use some of the spectrum to provide nation wide "highspeed" internet, not sure how fast it really would be but it would be better then dial up speeds and that would also mean that the 56% of Americans that cant get high speed will be able to get some form of it, but it will probably be 2-5 years before we see that happen.
