  That's great, I pay $45 (plus $15 for static IP) for 1.5mb/256k DSL
from earthlink, the only high speed provider from my area at the time,
well who didn't what $400+ a month.....

  The local local phone company, which installed and maintains earthlinks
DSL equipment, keeps sending me offers for 256k/256k DSL. Every now and
then I call them asking why they can't match what I've already got.
"You installed it, it's less then a mile to the Phone switch...."
If they could get their act together I'd switch, because they offer 
higher upload speeds then what I've got now and I could pick a local
ISP (www.swcp.com great company!) that I REALLY like. 

  I work with guys from the same phone company so I know lots about how
phone stuff works and how things are setup in my area. Just hearing
them talk makes me wonder why phones work at all...  They even complain
about the phone service from their company :^(
