Gotta offer higher speeds.

Better service (customer service especially).

Get a REAL bill from one of your customers.  It won't be for $15.  They'll 
have taxes, usage fees, modem rental etc. tacked on there.

I've asked people that have switched from us to give us a copy of the bill 
so we can see just how much they are really "saving".  No one has ever 
brought in a bill.  I don't think they save one red cent.

BTW, you can thank USF for this.  The telco will give away internet to keep 
the subsidies on the land line rolling in.

Out here Century Tel/link gets between $60 and $100 per month per line in 
USF funds (depends on who you ask).  One of my congressional staff folks 
told me that Century Tel gets 2/3rds of it's income from subsidies of one 
kind or another.  Heck, that makes them a government agency, not a private 
phone company :-).

deep sigh
