By my analog calculations using a paper map and a ruler, they are 3150 feet
from the telco CO, so they'd be perfect for 6Mbit DSL service from $ISP, if the
subject line is indeed the question here. However, the text of the message
indicates that they don't really care much about connectivity, and just want
hosting for a website and an announcement list. If they wanted to host these
things themselves, they should get ADSL service from Sonic.net, DSLExtreme,
RawBandwidth, LMI.net, or Speakeasy. Otherwise, they could put the website on
Google Page Creator, and the announcement list on Yahoo! Groups.
