(ratings below consensus)
The area where I live is very rural. I am currently 14000 feet from the Homestead CO through solid copper and barely get 1.2M/256. Due to the AT&T/Bellsouth merger, all upgrades to my location have been postponed/cancelled. My neighbor across the street is a DSL installer now working with AT&T and he is in the same boat.
I switched to a local WISP (www.skynet360.com) and now get 10/1 for $40/mo. There was a $99 installation charge, but it was worth it. Pings are in the 20-30ms range and download speeds average around 8-10. The lowest I have seen is around 5 and that was because the tower capacity was being used for the Homestead Racetrack. They were running at 40-100 Mbps on uploads. So if you watched the race in November 2010 all of the streaming footage was done using a wireless internet connection.
I will never got back to AT&T and I refuse to get Comcast(CRAP).
