Howdy,
I recently moved to Sandy Springs and of course signed up with the =
cheapest ISP i could find (sprint at the time).  i have since been =
tempted to switch to atlnet by the posts a while back to the list.  =
however, i dont remember reading anything about cable modems or ADSL.  =
ive been to bell south's web page and submitted the form to have my fone =
line checked for ADSL, and i recieved a postcard from MediaOne saying im =
getting cable modem access "within 30 to 90 days."  Because im new to =
the area, i dont know how much of this is propaganda or the real thing.  =
Does anyone use either of these services? if so, where can i find out =
more info about them and are they Linux friendly? =20
