Several will offer me IDSL, at almost 3x the speed of dialup, for $100 to $120 a month. Been there, done that. There's also ISDN, which I believe would give me similar speeds and probably cost even more. Bleh.
Comcast has been my best option for a while. Their basic service only offers 256 kbit up, which isn't enough, so I have their Pro package at nearly $100 a month, which gives me a measly 384 kbit up (and 4Mbit up, which is more than I need). I could get a price break if I also had cable tv... ha, I say. I have real IP addresses, but they change now and then, and my computers won't route well with each other, as each is assigned a different gateway, somewhere deep in the Comcast network.
Covad can give me a Dedicated Loop SOHO connection, 384 kbit up, 1.5 Mbit down, for $74.95 (plus equipment and installation one-time, router having wireless = bonus), and even 5 static IPs. It appears to be business class. This looks promising.
Great Oaks Wireless Internet is going to stop by my home tomorrow to see if they can get a connection there. They offer 1.5 Mbit *up and down* for a mere $64.95 a month, and guarantee 50% of that speed minimum during peak hours for residential customers. They don't think I can get that speed where I live, more likely 900 kbit, which would run $40 something a month. If they can't connect, I'll likely go for Covad, unless I find something better soon.
