This isn't really a Mac question per se, but figure folks here would know, and might work differently with Macs.

Not sure yet, but thinking it may be becoming the time to modernize from 56 k dial-up, despite an extra $50 a month. Don't need it for TMF, but too much other stuff with streaming video and folks who think sending 5 meg power points via email to everyone on their magic list, whether needed or not, is starting to show the limitation of what I've done for more than 15 years (still don't know nuthin about burping no cell phones, neither).

I've been reading the competing claims from local DSL provider, who will connect up to university system (yes, there is fast connection at the office) and Comcast, who do our TV cable, about who offers the better speed. I don't need Comcast's email. The DSL provider makes a big deal about privacy and not sharing common connections (they tie in directly from the house to the university system). I have no idea if this matters.

In the long run, I think the prices won't differ much.

Any thoughts?
