I've had Earthlink since I first got internet access 6 or so years ago. I guess I'm to lazy to change to anything else, but I've never had any problems with it in all these years. I also am to lazy to change email addys. I've grown attached to it since I've had the same one as long as I've had access.

www.dslextreme.com is what i use. it's a service that runs over SBC/PacBell lines, so it's really the same copper. but their customer service rocks and their website had the most information i needed to setup my wireless network at home.
i was a loyal earthlink customer for many years, but when the DSL prices dropped to $22 or so and earthlink couldn't come close (after 3 months that is) i changed. i did ask them why they were so expensive for DSL, they just said sorry... sigh.
for old die hard earthlink dial up customers, you can get a like a $10/mo account from them to keep your email addy AND a back up dial up service in the case your DSL (or other broadband) goes down. mine has had 2 long downtimes (a day each) in the last two years (yes, my fam and i were sad).
A residence doesn't need a T1, unless you are running a call center from your living room. Or perhaps you have outsourced your children and husband to India and need the extra bandwidth to communicate with them.
