Up until now my internet work is done on my work computer but I am going to buy a computer for my home also but I have a problem.

Since I am a single guy and never home the only phone I have is my cell and therefor, no active home phone.
What is the cheapest way for me to get the internet at home? I only need something basic as I do most of my on-line at work.

Thanks

Cable internet; Rogers, Cogeco, whoever serves your area.
Probably not "cheap", but without a phone line...

Get highspeed lite from rogers, cant loose. It's internt through cable, but they decrease the speed a little. 25 dollars a month tax in.

Any additional monthly fees added if I don't have cable already? (besides a likely hookup fee).
I have satellite.

Anyone know if you can get DSL even if you don't have phone service.... ?

Someone asked me not long ago, and I didn't know the answer...
