I've wondered about this myself . . . why not setup wireless to turn up an
area with line of site high speed connectivity, and then from that central
point wire to houses in the area.   At least here you have options of
DSL/Cable . . . at the Lake of the Ozarks area (where my headquarters is)
there is only one option . . . dialup, at least until recently.  Now they
have high-speed wireless from one local provider.  It works pretty good
