    Getting into the ISP business hey... Make sure you do lots of research. I wouldn't have thought the United States Government would have had to offer grants for this kind of thing in a country so technicalogically advanced. : peace:

    For the most part, it was government programs that got phone lines to the rural communities to begin with.

    If they're going to give free access to the Native Americans, the least they can do is get a pay-for-it service to farmers and such.

    Thanks to the state Governors wired schools program, rumor has it DSL will be coming my way.
    The Governor caused a lot of fuss when he used prisoners to wire the schools instead of contracting electricians.
    But he got the schools wired, and saved the state a fortune -- 0.24 $'s an hour vs. the big bucks.

    In Australia there is really no point, 95% of the country is not financially viable to service. Unlike the continental US, the same physical size as Australia (roughly) but with over 15 times the people, it's much more viable there :thumb:

    What you say is in essence true Albinus.
    But when you factor in the spread of that 15x population, it does leave a lot of people out in the cold.

    Are you aware that the second largest city in South Dakota is actually an Air Force base?
    Situated snugly against the 3rd largest city in the state. While the largest city is about 500 miles away on the other side of the state.

    That's a lot of cattle ranches/farms inbetween. How economically viable is it to run fibre-optic cable an extra 120 miles to wire Mr. rancher?
    In actuality, he has a real need for such connectivity, and would soon make good use of it in the everyday operations of his life/profession. But unfortunately, he is not likely to get that vital access in the near future.

    North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho - all have similar problems in regards to population -- there are a few pockets that get the attention. While the major part of the population goes without such infrastructure.

    But having little towns all across the country can be beneficial. Simply have a node on a transcontinental optic fibre, and the town is serviced. We don't have that in Australia, the only transcontinental fibre is the Nullabour Plain, between Perth and Adelaide (also the home of the world's longest stretch of straight railway).

    Sand isn't very good to lay cable in
