Other broadband options besides DSL, Cable, ISDN, T1(3)...?

I have just moved back in with the P's after gradumakatin' from college... I gave up my DSL connection to come home to a whopping 28.8 ! Yeehaw! They live in a "spacious" area where the homes are on an acre or more, and broadband lines would not be profitable... (100 homes in my neighborhood, at 6% avg broadband customers... 6 homes isn't a good enough profit for companies to bring it out here)... anyway... I CAN get ISDN128 for a low low price of $100 a month ... muhaahahaha.... RIGHT!... so... now i am onto bigger (and better?) solutions... wireless...

I am in the northwest 'burbs of Chicago and I read about Sprint Broadband... you get a tiny dish that links you to a bigger dish on the Sears Tower... but you have to have line of sight... I haven't called them yet, I was trying to get more info first...

Also, what about the satellite broadband connections? They any good? Download AND/OR upload?

Send me ANY info you can... Links, prices, speeds, service, etc...

If you want, you can just email me the info...

Thanks a bunch...
