Oh, I'm aware of that, but they don't get too bad of a rap on
broadbandreports.com (formerly dslreports.com), and I can get 1.5M DSL
on a cheapie phone line for a grand total of less than $35 a month
(they've got a promo going on for a one-year contract).

Do you have another ISP you can recommend that can come close to that
($50 or less is the target)?  I'm all for giving business to the local
guys, but I'm going to be a starving student again in six months or so,
and I'm trying to not spend money if I can avoid it.
