Yes, I am actually in one of those areas with very limited cable options. They just added digital capability recently, but I still can't get cable internet services at all.

I guess I am stuck with Frontier's second connect 3Mb service for some time.

Yes, up in the tumb on Michigan, its an analog only system. Family has a cabin there...no digital cable, but we do have internet. Its not DOCSIS3 though like my house in the metro-Detroit area.

DuQuoin, Illinois is the place that you're thinking about. It's deep in Southern Illinois.

It's been mentioned on this website before.

At least HSI is a redeeming factor. If it didn't have that, it would be pointless. It would be better to have DirecTV at that point...

DuQuoin is getting sold off to New Wave, the same company that provides cable here in Chester, they will at least upgrade the cable to having 10 Mbps. This entire area needs fiber IMO.
