In the "good news for bloggers" category, the trend to lessen the cost of broadband is still going down. SBC has announced that the cost of DSL is now $26.95 and Comcast has also announced lower prices. Verizon had already announced a reduction to $29.95 per month.
With the prices coming down into the range of dial-up services like AOL, it's going to be real interesting to see where things end up over the coming year. Once you taste speed, you'll never go back.
