Re: [TCLUG:5552] Sad News - "Vent"

I can't get DSL where I'm at either so I decided to check into cable
modems.  I don't know who your cable provider might be, but the one in
this area is Paragon.  I called them just yesterday about cable modem
service.  They said that they originally had not planned to roll out
such service until next year, but since so many people had called about
it (probably all of us who can't get DSL), they decided to roll it out

That's all I know.  I don't have dates, areas of service, cost or
anything else.  They said they'd get back to me within a week with more

You may want to a hold of your cable provider and see what they have to
