What do yall have now?
My mom has AT&T. I am getting a computer and probably putting it at Jared's house (if that's ok with Mike) . I was just seeing what the internet options were. I'm use to Cable so I don't really want to have to use dial-up. But $50 a month! Damn!
I use SBC DSL and they cap you at 1 mpbs. I'm told that this is done so that you get consistent speed. My parents use AT&T and at times get 2 mpbs or more. Main difference is I have to have an active telephone line, but get consistent speed. Cable speeds slow as more users get on and I've seen my parents connection move as slow as a dialup.
SBC/Prodigy dsl, I think they are switching me to Yahoo though. When I first signed on it was pretty slow, compared to my old cable modem. Now though it seems faster than the cable, seeing as how most of the bandwith hogs are on cable now
