Hooray! Just got my DSL connection from BTL. Works well so far. 64K full-time for BZ$100 per month. And my voice phone is independent of the internet.

Jesse - Got my curiosity up now. IS 64K correct? or is that a typo? That transfer rate is not much more than most people in the US still using dialup get at max ( 56k). DSL is touted as being many times faster than dialup, not 10-15% more. Or, is BTL really that bad?

BTL offers DSL at various speeds from 64K up to 512k (I think) but the faster speeds cost more. I'm not after speed but I am trying to save $$ so chose the cheapest. I had a 56K modem when on dialup but only got a connect speed of 48-50K. The DSL seems much faster but that may be my imagination. I like it so far... good to be on line at all times, and not tie up my voice line.
