I was wondering about that too. I don't know where you are but here in
Houston (one of the densest areas in the country for competing ISP's...
over 70 at last count have at LEAST a POP here) $19.95/month is almost
top-end! I can easily get $14.95/month here and I saw one ad last week for
$9.95/month unlimited PPP.
