Chicago DSL - providers, offers?

I'm not sure if this is in the correct forum, and I did a search for Chicago DSl and got nothing so apologies if this a repeated topic.

I'm looking to get DSL and am not sure who is offering what. This is what I have learned so far:

Aol: Free Hardware and Installation kit, 1 free month and $54.95 month thereafter. No contract.

AT&T: Not available in my area

Earthlink: Free Modem & Install kit, $29.95 for 1st 6 mo, $49.95 thereafter. 1 year contract, $149.95 early cancellation

Ameritech: Was told by a front end CSR that it was $29.95/mo, no other fees, no early cancellation, but when put through to Broadband dept, was told that as I have not been a customer for 6 months they were unable to offer this service, was not able to verify the costs mentioned but to be honest I think she was a little out on her figures.

Verizon: Website not responding to my phone number entry.

If anyone else knows of any providers and their current offers, please post here.

I went with Earthlink... if you Have Windows XP, you don't even have to install their software! Also, can't beat free hardware, and installation is a snap.
