No DSL available as I am 9 miles away from the CO as the crow flies and 
much farther as the wires would be run.

The local telephone monopoly, in spite of their advertisements about 
offering the service does not appear interested in putting in the 
equipment needed to service anyone that is not right next to their 
central switching office.

 From newspaper reports, it appears that they are waiting to get the FCC 
to change the rules so that they would not have to allow services like 
Speakeasy to resell the DSL lines to provide a higher quality service at 
a lower monthly rate.

 From what I can see, if the DSL lines were run, there would be no 
shortage of ISPs to lease them through.  Several of the services here 
seem to have a good reputation.
