    I'll start with mine.

    Lets compare the smallest ADSL package, 384k download 128k upload.
    We will need some things first:

    ADSL Line: 384k = 59(Per month)
    ADSL ISP Subscription: 384k = 49(Per month)
    ADSL Splitter(split voice from data): The first one is for free, additional fee for any extra.
    ADSL Modem(USB connection requires a usb port, ethernet connection a network card at around 45): JetSpeed 500/500i 108.85 and additional 50 as an installation cost.

    I guess you know math. Let's see yours now.

    You must be kidding. I get cable from Comcast for that exact same monthly price.

    I couldn't find any real information, just this crap:

    "Scorching Speeds: Downloads faster than 768K DSL and up to 25 times faster than dial-up, and uploads up to twice as fast as DSL.* Start measuring those downloads in seconds, not minutes. And get your work done, with more time for fun."

    I hate that they have tp relate speeds to download times, I just want the raw information.

    i think that's what onewecallgod meant. he said he doesn't get broadband, but the local company, which is comcast, charges $43 a month.

    Let's have a look at this.

    I'm using an online translator for the page so post here any words you don't understand. Also comment on the fact that my local internet providers are ruled by idiots.
