Interesting . . . and timely . . . thread since I am currently leaning towards going with DSL. I've been able to get it at home here in Unity for some time (I live about a mile out of town), but have resisted since a) I have DSL at work and have uploaded most of my pics and downloaded most of my software there when needed and b) I'm cheap and DSL was never a priority due to the expense.
However, I'm now seriously considering upgrading since the movie service that I use to get rental DVDs through the mail is now offering a program where you can also get up to 18 hours worth of free movies streamed through the computer . . . and since I enjoy watching movies . . . this might be the time to make the switch.
As for your original question FG: I think Bruce hit the nail on the head. Areas served by cable TV currently seem to be your best bet. In other words, just about every "metropolitan area" and even some smaller towns if they have cable service.
