What internet access company do you have? How much do you each month for it? Do you have to have a home telephone line included?

We want to get cable/dsl and I'm wondering who the best is and the cheapest is

TIA!

There is one pro/con that compares dsl to cabel and what you want to live with. With cable, you share the line, the more people on line the more slower it gets. I have not experienced this. With dsl, the further away from the hub you are, the slower the speed.

I have cable modem b/c it seemed the easiest to hook up, I like our cable company and the price is competative. I think it is around $35 a month, $25 for the first 3 I think. Pluse free hookup, free modem and so forth. Took 5 seconds to hook it up.

I love it, can't vouch for dsl though.

Oh, btw, I have adelphia cable

I have Adelphia cable also. I'm not sure how much it is on it's own, but my entire cable bill, including Adelphia Premier Powerlink is just shy of $150 per month.

we have roadrunner. But our apartment complex runs a deal. Both basic cable and roadrunner for 38.00 a month. Through the actual company its at least 40.00 for cable and 50.00 for roadrunner. But because of being through the apat=rtments and having to share a line it can get slow sometimes. I think I liked DSL better.

We have it through our phone company, I put roadrunner LOL!

We pay $80 per month for 3mg/sec down stream and 1.5 up. 1.5 up is equivelant to a T1 and 3mg/sec is twice as quick.

The $80 also includes free long distance, complete connections and the interent!!

They were running a special deal through Cincinnati Bell. I think they still have it going! Which is good because we have servers here also.
