I just got DSL at home (BellSouth).  It's interesting that it became
available within about 2 weeks of the time that cable access became
available (Charter Communications).  Funny what a little competition will

BTW, I'm very pleased with my connection - consistently reports 1,472,000
inbound, 256k outbound.  I'm happy. :)

Interesting Jim...

You might have seen my T-1 query last week (I'm not sure we need a full T-1)
and DSL
would be an option, except...

I am hearing from some BIG providers that they can take an order but be
prepared to
wait 3-4 MONTHS because AMERITECH (we are in Indiana and are CURSED with
as are Illinois, Michigan and Ohio...) cannot cooperate and get lines in in
any time
under 3-4 months... UNREAL...
