    Actually I have two questions:

    1) Other than Adelphia, are there any other broadband options in the Broadlands area? Verizon says that DSL is not available in my area, and there don't seem to be any other cable providers.

    2) This is a bit off topic, but are there any other *local* phone service providers that service the Broadlands area other than Verizon? I have had it with them, and would like to switch, but after an hour of calling numbers from the phonebook it appears that I don't have any choice but to use them.

    Unless you want to pay for a dedicated T1 line or something like that, Adelphia is really the only option until the wireless system is up and running.

    Hopefully it will not be too much longer until our wireless begins service!

    More updates to come, hopefully tomorrow.

    I live in Ashburn Village (CWC may be installing wireless here soon, which is why I'm lurking here) and Stickdog Communications is providing IDSL in the area. It's not cheap ($129/month) but they include 5 static IP addresses. They also say they sell local phone service.

    I've had IDSL service through Frontline reselling for NAS for over a year now. Certainly a far stretch from "broadband" but it beats a 56K dialup. As soon as our wireless access details are all ironed out, I would have no problems switching over. 128kbps is just too slow. :) $60/month for 1 static IP is a bit steep. Hopefully the wireless pricing plan will be a better value.
