The Register (http://www.theregister.co.uk) had an article today titled "NTL
to launch digital telly service in September". It lists high speed internet
access as one of the services it will offer in the UK. Perhaps the
competition will lower prices for you as it has for us. Anyway back to
Roger's question on ISDN. Everything I've read views ISDN as an obsolescent
technology being superseded by faster cheaper DSL and cable modem.
