Re: Choice of ISP

 I echo the prior recommendations of SpeakEasy and avoiding Comcast. 

Depending upon where you are, SpeakEasy does not provision all   
locations, how far you are from a CO (Central Office) the availability   
of services will vary. I really liked SpeakEasy when I lived in a   
location that they provisioned service in. Pricing was not the least   
expensive, though for the most part they were tech savvy, and easy to   
work with. 

I would recommend reviewing the site, and particularly the forums, at  
  (It is really about all broadband services...not just dsl). There is   
a wealth of information on providers, test tools, and forums specific   
to some of your choices.
