I wish I could agree. In the United Kingdom it looks as if
it will be some years before we even get reliable 64k
connections. I am still having to use an Analogue line to
connect to Britsh Telecom because they can't provide an ISDN
dial in, and ADSL in this area is a pipe dream. Perhaps I
should pay for my own fiber link. ( £30k+ )
