Dude, where's my high-speed?

News: Broadband in Ikeja

"Main One Cable Company has opened a Point-of-Presence in Ikeja, Lagos, providing broadband connectivity to businesses on the mainland axis of the state...
CEO Funke Opeke said the company's prospective clients in places such as Ojota, Opebi, Allen, Ikeja, Oregun, Maryland, Ikorodu Road and Ikeja Airport can now benefit from cost-effective and reliable internet services.
The primary beneficiaries are ISPs, manufacturing companies, hotels and other hospitality outfits, media and advertising concerns, FMCGs and other enterprises in the Ikeja area and its environs...
Main One currently has a growing list of major customers in Nigeria including MTN, Etisalat, Starcomms, Swift Networks, Mobitel, Netcom, IPNX, Visafone, e-Tranzact, GT Bank, and ExxonMobil."

What I want to know: What can I do to get real internet? 
8KB/s download speeds (my Visafone modem @about 100kb/s nominal) are just not good enough.

So glad to be dealing in 100-1000kbps consistently now. So glad. It's still expensive, and still limited, but it's a start. Thank you.
