I know a family that recently paid Comcast 15k to run a Comcast line down a private road and to their home, and most the the town already had service if they wanted it. So, Comcast does not connect everyone, unless they are willing to pay if you live in a area deemed not profitable enough to run cable to the homes.

One place I do tech work for have POS's that require Net access because part of the services link into API's for UPS, FexEx, and USPS for realtime transactions. The POS software and shipping software get updates regularly, whether it be bug fixes, feature improvements, or shipping rates updates. The POS, also, can links into a noreply email to send people invoices and tracking. Safe guards: being placed on a separate isolated network from the main one, strict firewall settings, intrusion detection, and a good host file. CCs are not processed on them at all, since there are handled by dedicated machines from merchant services on a dedicated landline.

Foobar2000 runs perfectly under WINE on Linux and OS X. I have been using it for years without any problems. So far, the only flaw I have found is that it does not find new music placed into your media folder after it finishes scanning for new files during start-up, so you have to restart the thing to help it find music just added.
