	Was it PathBroadband (www.pathbroadband.com)? At least they left a
flyer at my south-eastern Lafeyette house a few weeks back. Looks like
they have coverage over Lafeyette, Louisville, and Broomfield. Of course
their web site is rather useless, i.e. from their FAQ:

# How fast is PATHbroadband service?
# With a 56k modem, it could take more than three-and-a-half minutes to
# download a 1.5MB music fail. With PATH, you will be listening to your
# music in just a few seonds.

The flyer didn't even say this much. Maybe just I am EE/Computer geek who
likes real numbers and facts, but their entire service seems a bit too
much 'pie-in-the-sky-trust-us' for my liking.
