10 megabit connection

Today is my first full day with wireless broadband. A toaster-sized antenna delivers a torrent of bits to my home network. I get service from DLS, an ISP that provides wireless broadband in the northwest suburbs. My computer can now drink from a fire hose. After having IDSL from Speakeasy 144 up and down seems so inadequate. I can’t complain, Speakeasy provided excellent service.

When SBC started advertising Yahoo DSL I called to order, but to my dismay the sales representative told me that I had a digital Local loop. The sales representative told me that I could upgrade the local loop at my expense. Thanks SBC, just wait until I switch my local phone service at your expense.
