The company is HSA - High Speed Access. They are owned by Wired World which I think is one of Paul Allen's deals. They had neat market niche - partnering with small rural cable TV companies and acting as the backroom to provide net access to their customers. It is mostly a one way deal - all telco return.<br><br>But HSA sent me a letter last week saying that they are folding that business on the 29th so everybody is scrambling. The local cable guys are working with another ISP (MeshNet?) to pick up the service. HSA is selling their account list to Earthlink and transferring everyone there with a dialup account for $20 a month. I'm looking at the satellite deal as a longterm solution - the costs are comparable to cable after the initial big hit startup and install costs. <br><br>
