Check your plan. Last time I checked, Bellsouth's next highest speed tier was only a few dollars more-I'm assuming you're on Fast Access DSL Ultra ($32.95) vs DSL Extreme which is around $37.95.
DSL Lite clocks in around $19.95, with the fastest, 'Xtreme 6.0' @ $42.95. DSL Xtreme goes up to 3.0mbps which may work well with SD streams, depending on the size of your hdtv. I used the 1.5 tier initially, and had no problems streaming Netflix on the pc, but I don't know how networked blu ray players or Roku boxes would perform.
Bundling your services can drop the total costs, so if your budget allows, you could look into it.
