I don’t have cable. I have a modem that gets a signal from a tower. It connects to the computer through the thing-ummy-jig connector—the one they use for DSL. There are four or five such transponders around town.
You must be living out of town ... I have a relative who can get that sort of thing and they can’t get cable or DSL.
As a side note, I’m going to guess that part of what the FCC is going to do is get the last small percentage of people who can’t get broadband right now ... they’re going to make it so that they can get broadband. And it will be priced at the same level as what those in the city get.
Just my guess ... along with the fact that they’re not going to allow throttling and fast lanes.
