Broadband costs in the Southern States.

At home in Louisiana I pay $52/month for the fastest AT&T DSL available here (5Mb) and $49/month for COX cable 3Mb service - why two providers? Simply for redundancy, both have dropped off-line at critical times in the past and my wife's a teacher and has to submit her kids lesson plans via the web.

If you think that $100/month is expensive for 8Mb service then you should try the commercial service from COX - that's $180/month for 3Mb rates - higher rates are available of course ... if you've got the money.

So we have "competition" and "broadband" in Baton Rouge - aren't we lucky?
