Internet / Cable service in Connecticut

We are currently with Cox, and while we haven't had major problems with them, we're wondering what else is out there. Apparently Comcast is not available here, and in any case I'm not sure how good they are. Does anyone know of any other providers in this area, or has anyone had any good / bad experiences with companies in general? Are there things I should look out for? I recently found out Cox has a download cap, for example. Are there different technologies and if so, which are better (e.g. cable vs. DSL)? Goodjer hive-mind, please let your knowledge drip forth like a gentle shower, or a raging torrent if you so prefer!
