I have Comcast, had to get a business account to get static IP's though. 5Mb service.

I can keep my IP address for months. Eventually it will expire but I had it up 6 months once.

Lol DHCP ftw! I wanted to just go that route, but at the time I was working with a defense contractor and the only way they would let me through the firewall even with VPN was from a static IP.

Does Comcast still block inbound ports if you have a business account?

Are you looking for download speed only or also upload? Cable can only handle up to 768 k the download is up to 7 mb, ofcourse that all depends on how many people are on your hub at the time.

If you are just looking to surf and play games Comcast is great, if you are looking to use it for work or a server you need DSL or Comcast Business. With Qwest you can customize your package as needed, get a fixed IP for a server and buy the speed you need, both up and down. Comcast offers an upgrade but it is pricey.

Look at your need s and go from there, hope this helps some.

Found out yesterday that there is no cable up where the house is. Bummer. I did find a a provided that has 7mbs up and down and its point to point so I wouldn't get clogged up. Its less than what I pay now so I may give them a shot. The site is Whispertel and they have voice over IP as well so that takes care of the phone also.
I close on the 20th which is tomorrow, and will be coming back up on the 26th to camp out. We have no furniture so we'll be sleeping bagging it for the week we will be there. Can't believe it's really going to happen. I have been wanting out of Texas ever since I got here.
