56k here...but I won't bore you with my problems, or the fact both Cable and DSL aren't available in my area either. I'll try out online MP, and if it doesn't work very well...well, don't expect to see me online much for the next couple of years.
At least there are bots to play against...I just hope they have a range of skill settings, so you can ramp it up when you've beat them on one skill level. I just hope there's more on offer than just Easy, Medium or Hard settings when it comes to bot-matches. :/
