    With me losing my job, :'( we will have to give up our comcast internet, it's too expensive. What can we order that will be a little more reasonable for our pocketbook?

    If it is available in your area you can get SBC Yahoo dsl for $14.95 a month for the first year.

    What do I need to look for when choosing DSL? There are lots of services out there. What is the speed like compared to cable?

    Go to the web site of your local phone provider (Verizon, SBC, whoever). They should have a link in there that can confirm if DSL is available. All you have to do is enter your phone number, and it will check.

    Personally, I would stick with your local phone provider since they are the ones who are actually providing the DSL connection. Internet service providers (Yahoo!, Earthlink) provide other services besides your basic Internet. If you are a beginner, then a lot of times it is easier to go with an ISP like Yahoo!, or Earthlink. More experienced users do not like all of the software that these large ISPs ask you to install on your system. We prefer the basic connection, without the frills.
