Just got a cable modem!! Damn! How did I stand dial up for so long! Got mine from Comcast. 1.5Mbps up/128Kbps down. $25/month for the first 3 months, $45 after that.(Both prices include renting the modem.) Whooohoooo!!!!

Go to speedguide.net and tweak it for max output. I'm on Cox, 3000 dwn, 256up. The speed test listed is not accurate, try some of the speakeasy test on speedguide. Bill3508

cable IS the way to go..until FiberOptiks take over... spend a day or three on cable, then go to a phone line... You'll be ticked off in no time! I've had cable for about 4 years now.. wouldn't go back to phone if ya paid me! (well, maybe I would if you paid me enough, but then I'd secretly get and use cable or dsl when no one was lookin') [:D]
