That's awesome! When we looked at fibre it was a huge install fee AND $750 a month even with a two year contract.

$46 for Comcast regular speed. But that is because we pay for basic cable which is like $9. If we didn't pay for basic cable it would be $60. We use phone.com for phone service and have been very happy with it.

I saw this and wondered why I had never heard of it. I checked out the link and was pretty excited about it. Decided to check their availability... they don't have any coverage in any part of Ohio. Guess I won't be getting that anytime soon.

I pay $46 for ours through Cox. It's not the fastest one they offer but not the slowest either.

We pay $60ish a month, but we have basic, basic cable (just a cable in the tv, no box). If we didn't have the cable added it would be around $80ish just for comcast internet.

I pay $19.99 + tax a month for high speed internet through Comcast. It will go up in 6 months. They ensure me that I can get the next special, but that remains to be seen.

I was paying 49.95 for turbo rr then they wanted to up it to 54.95. I called and said I couldn't afford it and asked what other options they had. I ended up with a 32.99/month standard rr. Which I don't seem to have a difference in speed with.

Actually, this prompted me to run a test on my download speed, it's the same as it was when I was paying for "turbo rr". Makes me wonder with them sometimes.

About 60$/month for high-speed.
Not the cheapest option here, but the company we wanted.

If we get internet from the local cable company it is the same to get DSL and it is to get the same speed DSL, a landline, and expanded basic cable. It about $80. Right now the only interernet we have is the data plan on DH's cell phone. I would like to either get an wireless card for my laptop about $45-50 or pay the extra $25 to have DH's phone be teethered (make it it own wi-fi network). The teethering thing would only give us internet service if DH's cell phone is at home.

Ours is $30 mnth through the phone company, hi-speed.  Works great.  We could have a bit faster package but at our distance we cannot get it any faster anyway.

We pay $30/month for Clear which is available in some major metropolitan areas. It's kind of weird, you arent connecting to a cable or to a phone line, they send you a wireless receiver that you connect to you computer and it picks up the signal from the nearest tower. It's cheap and very fast so I'm happy.
