do not have intenet service in our area yet, even though they have digital
cable. They said they would have it late this year or early next.
Same phone company. Had DSL available where we lived, just not here. Our
house is maybe three blocks away from the phone office in town. My wife had
a phone call yesterday about DSL but told them to call back. So I am in
hopes that I will once again be able to send email and load a new web page
at the same time.
We have DSL at work, so I really get reminded on a daily basis just how bad
dial up can be.
