I keep asking Wightman when they're moving farther south.  They're
current deployment is in Hanover, but they go as far south as
Listowel.  A few co-workers I know live there and love it.
TV/Internet/Phone for $140 / month.  IPTV service that can be hacked
to work directly with MythTV.

Apparently, Hanover will take them a year or two, and they won't
reveal their next move until they near the end of that. :/  No fun.

I think the best bet for getting decent ISP's is keeping ideas like
kingstreetinternet.com alive and hopefully not letting Rogers / Bell
buy them out.
