I do not host anything at home either and I have been using Comcast. I
have a personal vendetta against ATT and their service totally sucks.
Comcast is far from cheap though. If you have cable it is around 30$
but if you don't it will cost you about 60$. Comcast download speed is
good. I used to pay for the 6meg download but never saw numbers close
to 6 megs, topped out around 4. I switched to the 3meg download plan
and did not see numbers close to 3 megs either, more around 1.5megs.
All of their plans limit uploads to one speed which I believe is
