well if thats the only provider for ur small town then they can hike up the prices sky high and people will pay, I would, pretty good speeds.

For the size of the town, the dsl is fast but expensive..They ran a line test on my line and said it is capable of 7 meg down and 1 meg up...Within the next 2 to 5 years will be able to have fiber optic line....I grew up in this town, so I will be here for a long time..
