Anyone have a reliable and cheap ISP that they use for decent speeds?  I'm using Blackfoot DSL and it drops randomly throughout the day and is generally slow even though I have the most expensive package.

Bresnan is probably the best but I don't want to be saddled with their "intro" price that adds fees every month until you are paying $75/month for internet alone and they stuff cable down  your throat and will turn you off if you're slightly past due.

Is there a good alternative in town?

It turns out some kid plugged a play phone into a wall jack and that was causing my DSL issues.  I got so spoiled at my last place with free cable internet that the DSL is a new and strange experience haha.

My cell phone is a blackberry and I went to tether.com and paid $50 so I could use the blackberry stuff for my laptop.  I use it as a backup - but I think for some folks it could be just fine for regular use.

At home (stevi) I use dsl.
