Check with rockynet.net. I've considered a T1 just because it is the
only thing available, beyond 56k, here in my neighborhood (isdn requires
a booster that massively boosts the cost, cable isn't available, and the
lines don't qualify for dsl). Typically there is a large install fee,
and a large monthly fee, for the line. Sometimes rockynet subsidizes
this (do ask if you can get both forward and reverse dns, since my
company doesn't get reverse...I assume it is because my company doesn't
want it). It is expensive, but T1's can be run almost anywhere, and the
backbone coop that most of the area uses runs through Boulder.
