Just a note from The New York Times, 1/17/00; Tidbits, January 2000:
Broadband: How broadly? How soon? The converging Internet, cable TV and telephone industries are spending billions of dollars to make broadband a reality, whether the broadband connection is through a cable system or telephone line. This represents the most extensive, most expensive engineering project in residential communications since the cable TV industry started wiring neighborhoods in the 1960s. Around the nation, residential streets are being torn up for new fiber-optic cables. Already, some 1.4 million U.S. homes now enjoy broadband on-ramps. And by the end of the year, roughly 100 million households should have access to some sort of high-speed data connection.
