    i use my connection at home to vpn into work. and my 832kb/s upstream is a real pain. and bt have serverly limited the valiablity of sdsl

    it might get a bit better as and when adsl2+ is in ready supply.

    I live in Buffalo, NY. I have been waiting for FIOS for over a year now. They have a kiosk in a mall just outside of Buffalo, yet they don't offer it. But all the suburbs can get it, just not us in the city. The still don't have their TV service up and running yet either.

    Seems like quite a hefty price to me. Here in sweden a 100mbps dl/ul fibre connection costs like 350SEK (about 54 USD with current exchange rates). I guess broadband is the one thing sweden does well :)

    hope massachusetts gets its act together.. getting FiOS seems possible with two bordering states offering it.. that's a nifty speed increase if I do say so

    My town doesn't even have a viable fiber system yet. The only buildings that have it are my Dad's office and the Capital Building
