"According to ZD's Anchordesk, GTE is planning to roll out ADSL services in 30 some metro areas throughout the rest of this year. Cost is supposed to be something on the order of $30 per month, not including install charges and rental of the equipment (since the equipment is standard and not *THAT* expensive, expect the stuff popping up for sale in the areas that GTE offers it- just like the ISDN hardware did when the local Telcos wised up some on that.) For some, at least, the pipe's about to get better and faster.
