What kind of internet provider and other stuff do I need to run a website out of my apartment?

I think I'm going to launch a website for public consumption, and I put my chances at popular success at .01% :-) For the time being, I'd rather deal with the hardware.
From what I can gather, I don't need a static IP. What would the advantage be of having one?
My current upload speed with my cable modem is a theoretical max of 512Kbps. At what point will that not be enough?
What questions do I need to ask an internet provider besides "how fast will the connection be?" and "how much will it cost me?"?
Is there a point at which it's cheaper to have root access at a host that takes care of the hardware than it is to have whatever company speed up the internet access from my apartment?
