There are two somewhat viable wide-band providers in area. Their
*ADVERTISED* rates are more than double what I pay my _local_
ISP. The kicker is the fine print. To get their advertised rate
you have to purchase 2 *TWO* other packages(of no interest to me)
bringing effective cost to almost 10 times what I'm paying for
marginal increase in utility. And at a massive loss in customer
service - currently I can pick phone or drive < 5 miles and speak
to owner of the ISP ;}
