Yeah, lotta people live in the sticks and are forced to use it. Drives some close friends of ours nuts, as they're stuck with 56k, and really would love broadband (won't do satellite though).
And I must be getting old, cause I remember when 9600 and 14.4k were the absolute fastest speeds you can get. Hell, 2400 was only just starting to become slow back then..
Damn I feel old..
