ISDN costs way more especially if you're a heavy user like me but it's
the only option I have for the moment. Chorus doesn't run cables up to
where I live which is why I switched to satellite.
I'm still holding out that either Eircom or ESAT will deliver the DSL
they've been promising for some time. Assuming they publish some
reasonable rates, I'd much prefer to switch to them than Chorus.
The couple of things that concerns me about all these high speed
offerings is Linux support and IP masquerading (NAT). I have heard some
US cable/DSL companies are using NAT on their servers which makes it
impossible for stuff like VPN and some streaming technologies to work
