My area of the United States is by no means unique.  Other rural areas 
in other countries have similar issues, and I suspect there are even 
places in Europe that have them.

On the other hand, vast areas of entire countries may be without much of 
a choice.

It is NOT free if one must make a long-distance call to access it!  In 
that case, it's usually far more expensive than a normal ISP.
