Are you in Cincinnati? According to a story over at slashdot Cincinnati is the first town to offer broadband over power lines. <br><br>I thought this kind of thing was a long way off from being reality, but the article appears legit. If you're in Cinci have you heard about this?<br><br>Here's the kicker!! "At $29.95/month for 1 Mb/s both upstream and down, it's only a few bucks more than the local dialup providers."<br><br>1Mb BOTH directions for $29!? Holy bandwidth, Batman! <br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by Trog on 03/02/04 06:53 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
Crap, look at those prices!!! Plus, see what it costs for 1Mb/sec UPLOAD any place in the U.S. I pay $40/month for about 1Mb/sec down and about 25k/sec up. That upload speed SUCKS to say the least.<br><br>This almost sounds too good to be true, and you know what that usually means...<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by Trog on 03/02/04 07:10 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
