Where is your town? I believe there are some places in the US where only one broadband provider is available, but I'm not privy to any of them. I live in a rural part of Utah, and there are no less than four options available to me (Comcast, Century Link, and a couple of WISPs). I currently get ~60 Mb up/down for $45/mo with my WISP.
