    Forget about T3...stick with DSL or Cable and wait till fibre optics become reasonable. Fibre optics is the future with light used as medium of transfer of data, quality of the data is not affected and its digital too.

    well one advantage to being your own ISP would be if you were your own customer and were into File swapping then when the riaa sues your isp to get them to divulge the identity of the file swapper you could plead your constitutional right not to incriminate yourself.

    LOL
