Broadband Access Without the Pork?

demopolis Earthlink Broadband (412 comments)

The main providers in the Minneapolis area consist of Qwest DSL or Comcast Cable. Comcast of course tacks on an extra fee if you don't subscribe to cable tv as well. I was able to get around that by subscribing to Earthlink Cable broadband. Basically, all the equipment and connections are provided by Comcast, even the bill comes from Comcast (it says Earthlink in the line item), but I pay the same rate as a TV subscriber.
