I live 1.1 miles outside of the city limits of an Austin, Texas metro suburb. AT&T only provides 1.5Mb DSL (1.5Mb down, 384Kb up) here - too slow for my regular video conferencing/presentations (I often work out of my home office). The local cable company won't provide service at my address. I have to settle for line of site Internet access at 9Mb down, 1Mb up - it works okay for me, but it also costs a fairly steep $106/mo. I'd love to have "broadband" service at 25/3, but that's probably another 10 years away from me...if I'm lucky.
