Here in rural central Oklahoma we don't have access to DSL or cable. 
Tried satellite internet and that sucked because of the time lag. Our 
dial up speeds run about 30kbs on a *good* day and about 26kbs on 
average. Luckily we have two wireless broadband providers in our area 
that I "rent" tower space to for free internet service [ also a ham 
radio operator and have two towers up ]. I also supply the electricity 
to run their equipment and have a backup generator for emergencies. Both 
providers have about an average of 7Mbs download speeds. Biggest 
headache is finding servers that can actually send it down that fast.
