      For my setup at home, I was very unhappy with
      Verizon's pricing. Business DSL comes in at around
      $80/month with a static address and a lot of other
      stuff I really don't need for playing with DECnet.
      Comcast weighs in at $99. I called my old ISP in
      Doylestown and went with a $25 dialup version. In fact
      I am now looking for a vintage DEC modem so I can run
      this dialup connection the old fashioned way once it
      is up. Traffic seems to be quite low volume. If anyone
      has a lead on a real DEC modem please let me know.
      They appear on the World's Favorite Auction Site
      periodically but I've not paid them much attention in
      the past.

      What infrastructure is currently available at the
      museum site ? Is there existing telephone service with
      inside wiring ?
