Don't discount the cable modem.  We are hosting our site using ADSL service.
We do not get a static IP address.  However, we do get a 12 hrs lease on the
IP address, and if the machine is always on, then you should not lose your
IP address.  In the past 18 months, I think our IP address had changed once.
When it does, we log into the ISP that hosts our DNS and update the DNS
entries and we are back on line again.  It is pretty simple thing and is NOT
a hassle at all.  Our ADSL is 256 up, and 1.5 MPS down.  It works very well
and costs about 50/month.  We paid for the install and the DSL modem, but I
believe they are offering for free now since there is a lot of competition
in metro ATL for DSL services.  By all means, revisit the cable modem.  One
of the guys that works for me runs his Church's web site from is house from
a cable modem with no static IP address. He support some streaming video
apps and I believe audio on it.  If you want any more info, let me know.

The cable companies around here don't offer static IP addresses, so that
option is out.

The price of a T1 around here is $1500 per month.  I don't think I'll need
that kind of bandwidth to start.  Also, the phone company here says they
can't split a T1.

I'm concerned about the speed if IDSL.  To alleviate a bandwidth bottleneck,
I've considered using two (2) IDSL lines - one routed to an AS/400  server
that could handle software demos and customer support applications, the
other routed to a Linux server for file downloads.

Any other suggestions?
