The DSL charge from BellSouth is ~$60US reducing the CKb to $0.052US.
(That's at full rate)

:I think Roeland is ignoring a couple of pretty important issues to many
:1. Many folks are almost completely price-driven. A $25 service
:over a $49 service, regardless of capacity issues.
:2. Some folks are very much part-time connectors. They use their
:line to talk to their ISP. They don't consider the cost of the
:line as part of
:the cost of the Ineternet connection. So their ISP service costs
:them 9 or 19
:dollars (or even 0, if we reach that point).
