This is surprisingly cheap - not a special introductory offer by any

In addition to the local exchange having to be compatible with the  
technology, the wiring "in the street" has to be compatible too. This  
means people in Dunlop will still be stuck on 28kbps dialup until  
their suburbs get rewired. Believe me, house sitting for someone in  
Dunlop can get quite annoying when all you can do is watch commercial  
television (digital or otherwise).
