or if you want speedy not cheap you could look at it like this:
your 1.5mbps dsl at $20/month is ~11 times slower then my cable
connection on a bad day. (16x slower on a good day)
looking at $/mbps type ratio dsl would be over $200/month
at that speed. With static IP I am $94/month.
not that I like comcast, would drop them like 3rd period
french if there was anything else here..
I could get ATT dsl but I need speedy more then cheap.
I did very much enjoy dropping comcast tv for directv and
an Hauppauge hd-pvr unit into my mythtv machine.
(old comcast box did all channels out firewire port
even encrypted and HD ones so needed something for
driectv to linux)
