It has to stop somewhere.

My monthly phone bill for a single POTS line and ADSL 3mb/512kb is $86 per month. $17 of that bill is made up of taxes and other fees. USF is $2 of that $17. $6.50 is the federal subscriber line charge, the rest is made up of local, county and state taxes, charges to support mass transit (on a phone bill?) and E911. $200 a year in charges that don't have anything to do with phone or internet service and a good reason to find another way to access the internet and talk to people in these depression times. (notice I didn't say recession?)

I thought that here in Aus. we were behind the internet 8 ball.

I got 30 gig down on a 1500/386 conenction, rock solid for $A50 per month (about $US 42 per month), no modem rental, no taxes and another $A19.50 for copper connection. Total about $US68 per month. Ok so I lose 12.5% on uploads but who's complaining.

And I'm relatively out in the boondocks being about 70 miles from any major town, my town has 1200 people.
