Sounds great! I, too, have a single-channel ISDN in my home, and find it
works great for me, given how slow the rest of the 'net can be. The
problem is the initial costs of setting up a frame-relay (starting with
256K, for instance), and also the monthly costs, which can be high for a
small co-housing community like ours (only 7 units plus common house).
Still, like you said, a bigger pipe creates more opportunity for
entreprenurial ventures.
