    ResTel, founding in 1951, has been providing internet access through
    phone-line-based DSL, but says speeds on DSL top out at about 6 Mbps,
    while the new fiber is offered at 10- to 20- Mbps downloads — though
    that could easily go to 100 Mbps given the huge capacity of fiber networks
    That's from. http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2011/07/rural-fiber-internet/
    The question is at what cost and what will be the caps on the amount
    allowed to be downloaded? There are big bucks as stake here and
    everyone wants more than their share.

    You realize the OP doesn't really care about the answer to his question.

    He's posting from a Web-to-USENET site, and the promotional link
    at the bottom of the post is his "spam".
