  Being in one of those rural areas (north-central Idaho) where there is 
no DSL, no cable, and voice only cell towers and lots of mountains and 
valleys, I would love to see it.  But, I am not going to hold my 
breath.  Every time someone comes up with a new broadband plan to help 
the rural areas, it gets deployed in the big cities.   For now I will 
have to be happy with Wildblue(2 way satellite) at $79.97/mo for 1.5Mbit 
down/256K up.
