that really too bad about the lack of high-speed access in other countries. In the US, the price of ISDN for the loop is $200/month alone. Plus the $28/month from the providers. Its crazy, considering that the cable is now $39/month for me
Its my own fault for living out in the sticks I guess.
The ISDN costs me approx ÃÂ£150 per month ($225 approx) for a 24/7 64k connection (no extra call charges). I can use it as an "always on" connection if I want so I guess its not bad price wise - and most of my net activity is telnet based for server admining and ftp for uploading sites so its not to much of a hinderence.
We can get satellite connections in the UK, but its too windy where I live for that
