I probably don't have the most updated information, because when I had DSL it was about 3 years ago. But I paid I think $24.99/month for pretty fast speed. But because it was DSL, I had to have a landline phone to work it, which ran me about $28/month with taxes, fees, etc. So when all was said and done it was running me about $53/month, and I had a landline phone that I never used except for connecting to the internet.

Ironically enough, the United States is one of the slowest moving internet countries in the world. Places such as Japan and Germany have speeds in the gigabyte range and have had them for quite some time. LOL, they probably look at our 10mbps speeds as archaic!

i have Insight for my Cable/DVR/ISP and love it. 10meg is the low end and they now offer 20meg as well. I had DirectTv & Alltell/Windstream years ago and well, the DSL was similar to dial up for me.
I am also a heavy bandwidth user w/ 3 pcs, 2 360s, and a Wii all on my home network, so take your need for anything similar into consideration. (i pay $140 for 1 Dig Box, 1 Dig DVR, HBO, Starz, & Internet)
can't speak for their phone service but i am not a fan of Voip.
