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

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 Ameritech as are Illinois, Michigan and Ohio...) cannot cooperate and get lines in in any time under 3-4 months... UNREAL...
