Cheap is subjective, so only you can define it. From your statements,
the above is not what you consider cheap.

Then I'm guessing you have to opt for:
Cheap, !Fast, Good
or
Cheap, Fast, !Good
or
budget for the service level you are looking for.
or
disconnect from this internet fad thingy, and go back to fidonet where
all the fun _really_ is :)

The way some folks talk about their DSL, I wouldn't be surprised if they
considered the mortgage to be an acceptable expense to cut to cover the
cost.
