What’s the cheapest internet package in Portland, Oregon?
(Can I go cheaper than Comcast's $47-a-month Xfinity?)

Hi! I am currently paying approximately $47 a month for internet service through Comcast here in Portland. The bill breaks down to $39.95 a month for the service, and $7 a month to lease the modem (which sits between the coaxial cable coming into the house and my wireless router).
I'm not sure what "name" the speed I have is called, but I max out at around 200KB/s down, and 100KB/s up. Take from that what you will.
So, other than dialup, is there a cheaper home-internet alternative?
(please, let's avoid any suggestions outside the home—going to wifi coffee shops, etc)
Oh, and I don't need anything else like a land line or cable TV, I'm only interested in the possibility of a price lower that $47.
Thanks in advance for any tips!
