    Where do I start? I'm looking to get something for my appartment in Fairfield, CT. The cheapest I am seeing is from SBC Yahoo! DSL, but it looks like a slow DSL connection yet it is only 19.99 a month.

    Anyone know where I can look for the best deals? Google is bringing me nothing good towards my research.

    Might try the yellow pages in your local phone book under internet. I have sbc yahoo and pay $15 a month. decent connection for the money.

    do you game online or anything? I want to get back into counterstrike and just troll the internet like usual, I am just hoping that SBC Yahoo isn't some half ass service for the cheaper price.

    I don't game, but I can run a speed test for you real quick. I think cable would probably do you better for a faster connection if you need it.
