$395 - modem
$95 - installation
$25 - account initialization (if you don't already have one w/ the ISP)
$99 - flat monthly fee for 256k access ($100's more to open up the pipe)

Let's see... $1678 (or $1703) for the first year's access. $1188
thereafter. Ouch.

Around here, way cool = way expensive.
