well, i havent kept up with this sort of thing lately, but I believe that aol broadband is a program, not an isp. I could be totally wrong, though. Comcast is the biggest cable company, and I use them. I hear dsl is pretty slow compared to cable, but it is cheaper. I personally like our comcast, and would reccomend it.

actually, AOL Broadband is my isp. its also the program that I use, But AOL Broadband is my dsl provider. :? Personally, I dont think Cable is faster, I think they are about the same speed wise, I dont know though, I might be wrong. :P

Cable is faster by far, I use W.O.W. I used to use comcast but they suck and so does thier support.

it is true that comcasts support lacks. But it all depends where you are, and what services you can get

I have only one option for broadband where I live and that is the company I work for :shock: then again I have no limits on bandwidth. But I have customers calling all hours of the day, about various things.

you question is too general because there could be many many options
in your specific area that are different from everyone else. I suggest if
you have any sort of cable or dsl other than AOL available, to jump on it
ASAP. You just need to go to figure out who is available in your area and
go shopping!

are you looking to stick with dsl? or cable?

in my home area, sprint is the only one's offering dsl, and I only have 1
choice for cable too. That's all I meant by saying it was too general of a
question.

i would definitely go with cable if you can. I would just recommend you
get yourself a router to help protect yourself. This goes for any ISP any
more, but with cable it's almost necessary.

I think UNFLUX meant a Firewall not a router. Also a firewall that has builtin capabilities like NATing, DHCP, DMZ and other functions. The other functions include not responeding to WAN port ECHO's. Enjoy :D

you can use both if you want, but in essence, a router is a physical
firewall. It can get tricky if you try to use both. A good router and
antivirus program is probably all you'll need.

Thats what I was thinking.. Im not sure if I can get the cable that I wanted because thats like 50 dollars a month and I dont have a job..yet.. so Ill probably have to wait awhile cuz I only pay 31 dollars for my AOL Broadband....
