Just one point - having been in a situation where finding an "alternative" to Cable Modem connection was imperative, I can add/correct something here. ISDN can provide up to 128kb/Sec, not 1.53Mb/sec. IDSL, effectively DSL over ISDN lines gets up to 144kb/sec by combining both B channels (64kb/sec each) and the D channel (16kb/sec) that's normally used for control.
Range on ISDN is fairly impressive. I know the range is measured in at least 10's of miles, rather than DSL's 18K/feet (more or less, depending on carrier, speed, etc.)
