I can understand why someone who lives out in the boonies where there isn't anything else offered might think to pay for their piss-poor service but even low rent cable and DSL offerings are way better (and cheaper).
I don't live in boonies areas, but I can't even get DSL (20K ft. to CO) and FIOS (available in the cities, but not in my neighborhoods!). Dial-up sucks at about 3 KB/sec averages for already compressed downloads.
