I knew someone would ask that.  Then you're covered by the smiley face in
the sentence above :)  FWIW, you can get Orcon UBS 256kbps DSL for $39.95
with a 1gb cap, or you can get Xtra Jetstream at 2mbit for that price with
the same 1gb cap.  After that it drops back to dialup speed.  But that first
gig is so much nicer ;)

A dialup plan will run around $20/month, but to truly compare you have to
factor in the period your phone line will be out of use.

As an aside, please only quote the content in the message that is relevant,
and don't start new lines with > - when I first read your message, it didn't
look like you'd said anything else.
