Help! I need internet!

How much are you paying for it, and what service providers do you use? Know of any good deals or have any recommendations?

Around here, it's cheaper to get a cable modem + basic cable tv than to get a cable modem alone. I think it's around 50-60 a month.

I probably shouldn't comment on a public forum about where I get my internet.

we all know about what you can do with an antennae and a hamster with a wheel.

I have a bunch of chinese kids in my basement who speak back and forth through a cup phone. It may cost more in food per month, but I get more uptime than most ISPs.

edit: I should probably be serious.

I have a local dialup company at home, and at school I just leech off the backbone.

Like Jay said, we in Geawja usually use our cable provider's internet service. I have Comcast Highspeed Internet.

I'm using some kind of satelite internet connection, comes bundled in with the TV bill, and it's absurdly expensive. If I had to pay for it, I would just go back to dialup.

At home (parent's house), we use dialup. My dad has been saying he'd get Road Runner for years, but I doubt he will.

Wireless signals don't extend far enough for us to use in apartments. And even if they did, we'd have to sign in every two hours, which is annoying
