    My last internet connect was dial up. I'm getting a laptop for school in January.

    Thinking of Comcast for internet connection.

    Is this good:
    Performance - Special Offer 29.99, then 44.99/month

    NEW SUBSCRIBERS: Sign up for high-speed Internet today and get download speeds up to 15 Mbps and uploads up to 3 Mbps with PowerBoost!

    Surf the net, download music, upload photos and chat with friends at speeds way faster than DSL. Constant Guard - a $360 value of top-rated security software, including Norton Security Suite and much more. XFINITY Connect with 7 e-mail accounts, each with 10GB of storage. More than 3,500 live games on ESPN3.com. Backed by the Comcast 30-day money-back guarantee.

    I don't have a home phone. There are phone jacks here though. Do I need to have home phone for this connection?

    If I get this, how do I make it all wireless? Is that an extra monthly fee?

    Thanks!

    I believe Comcast is a cable connection not a phone jack connection.

    To make it wireless you will just need to add a wireless router that you can buy almost anywhere that sells computer stuff.

    once you get the router signed onto your lappy make sure you secure it! that way you won't be giving your neighbors free internet!

    If Comcast gives you one *free, that would be a good choice cuz then they will also be able to support it if things go wrong.

    *Make sure to read the fine print.
