If you drive around rural central and northeastern Texas, every ranch house and bunkhouse has a DirecTV or Dish installation.  Surprisingly, many of these same houses also have DSL available from the (heavily subsidized) telephone coops in the area.  The speeds aren't screaming, typically being in the 300-700 down/128-384 up ADSL-2+ range. So the demand is there, and so is the service in some areas.
