About a year ago I heard that Microsoft was getting together with Softbank and Tokyo Denryoko to form a company called SpeedNet that would offer broadband access nationwide. Here's an article from last year: http://www.businessweek.com/1999/99_47/b3656164.htm Anyone know whatever happened to that? Are there any more recent rumors of other companies getting ready to offer a similar nationwide service? Since I live in the middle of nowhere, my only choice is NTT's OCN Economy for an outrageous 34,000 yen a month. That's what I've been using, but my soon-to-be-former employer footed the bill. I can't justify spending over 400,000 yen a year to run my own server, so I have to get rid of it. The thought of having to go back to dial-up after having a taste of the good life is...well...yucky.
