Thanks to everybody who answered my inquiry. 
However, I have thought of another issue with regards to importing my
address book and user made folders from my current ISP which is Juno. 
Will I be able to do this if I get DSL or a cable modem, and if so, how? 
Oh yeah, thanks Rich for the site. I will check it out.

A good website to check out for information like this is

The price you mentioned is pretty good.

As for setting them up most should be mostly accessible with jaws. It is
mostly plug and play. If you think you will need help ask them what costs
may be associated with a home visit by a tech.

Both ways work just fine in terms of speed. Cable usually is a bit faster
in most area's. Phone is more dedicated to just one person. If you are in
a metro area or such with Comcast you might notice a slow down around 6
pm when everyone gets home and turns on their system. Not so much with
over the phone. Setup costs are also something to take into
consideration. Don't lease the modem, buy it.

For cable they will also have to put in another jack in your residence if
that matters. The cable line for the computer must be the first one on
the circuit and that is why they do that.

One other note. After going high speed you should put yourself behind a
router for safety. Some software kinds are pretty good but a hardware one
is better in my opinion.

Hi list, 
I have a few questions about the aforementioned services. (DSL or a cable
Which would you recommend for use with JAWS or does it make a difference?

I am getting pretty tired of this 56-K modem. However, I want something
that will work pretty efficiently with JAWS and won't put too much stress
on my computer. 
I am thinking about signing up with Bellsouth. They have been advertising
their $24.95 per month deal for DSL service. Is this pretty reasonable? 
Also, are the modems pretty easy to set up if I want to do it myself?
What about a cable modem? my household is currently signed up with Time
Warner, which is now owned by Comcast I believe. 
What I want to know is the advantages and disadvantages of each service. 
I will list my system properties for my laptop below. I also have a
docking station. 

System Properties
Microsoft Windows XP
Home Edition

Thanks and I hope to hear from you all soon! 

Happy New Year!
