NTT has B-FLET'S 100M (fibre) or FLET'S ADSL, TEPCO (Tokyo Electric) and Cable TV are the new boys and also provide services. Cabke TV internet generally sucks. * a Type-2 Telecommunication Carrier, ie an ISP that does authorization, gives you mail, peer to peer and upstream to the rest of the world. You could waste your time with AsahiNet, OCN (NTT's ISP), or the myriad of others or go for GOL Japan's number 1 ISP with the best English support by native English speakers and surprisingly sexy engineers . GOL can help with the NTT bit. ADSL can usually be running within a week or so, fibre might take a month or more and require persmission from your landlord for construction. You will most likely use NTT copper so that will be the slowest part of getting set up. Yahoo BB is a fake Type 1 and Type 2 company as they don't own any copper. Your telephone line is transfered to them, they have very poor customer support and zero English support. Stay away from them GOL is a bit more expensive than some but there is probably some campaign going for free stuff. http://www.fusiongol.com/english/service/ BTW Please don't look at the headers of this message. >* Which I would only consider if Brett comes out and does the install >personally! ;) > > > I provide several options: costumes: French maid, high school girl, nun, domanatrix; ask about the others.
