SpeedNet works only with Windows now, and Mac sometime in the future. ZDNet Japan has article about their testbed in Saitama. http://www.zdnet.co.jp/news/0008/29/speednet.html I also found another press release about the US/French/Japanese joint venture currently doing a feasibility study into providing nationwide DSL access: http://18.104.22.168/news/pr/mitsui_print.html If Garnet Communications has a Web site, I can't find it. And I find it hard to believe the conclusion of their feasibility study would be to not offer DSL in Japan. I guess it hinges a lot on how much NTT will charge to provide access to their network. What about satellite Internet access? Any rumors in that field? >GOL will be offering ADSL starting Dec. 1 (and also Flets ISDN). Look >here for info: > >http://home.gol.com/personal/index_e.html It looks like Flets could infiltrate my area within a year or so, but it a paltry 64k. ASDL seems like it's still concentrated in Tokyo. It's been a long time since I've bitched about Japan, but I feel the urge coming on. >Richard> Since I live in the middle of nowhere > >Exactly where? Nogi-machi, Tochigi. 0280 area code. Few businesses, lotsa rice. >If you're really away from things, your best shot might be 128K >ISDN dialup. That was my plan--change the dedicated OCN line to dialup ISDN. The thing is I'm really keen on being able to run a server from home since I won't be able to play with the computers at the corporation I'm going to start working for next month. Rich
