It depends entirely on what you call "good". If you are just browsing and listening to music, 1mbps is fine. If you want to watch videos online, you will need something a bit faster.

Comcast offers 50 Mbps but is it really necessary for basic internet use? At&t offers only 6Mbps

Well if you need it only for surfing the net it is quite good ... but it is too slow to download movies , music etc. So if you want your internet connection to do everything fast then you shouldn't choose this one :P (by the way , here in Greece there is a net connection with 24Mb speed with the same money :D)

Well, 3mbps is kinda the normal thingy of everyone. Depends on what you need, for online gaming I would recommend more, I currently have 10,000+mbps (thanks to Google Fiber) but you don't need that much. (Downloads full bluray series in 8s)

I swear, America is ripping it's citizens off for internet nowadays, here in the UK you can get a 10mbps for 24.99, 20mbps for 34.99 and a 50mbps for 49.99
1mbps is around 100kbps which would be suitable for browsing the web, very slowly.
3mbps is around 300kbps which would be better for watching videos
Currently I have a 50mbps, which is 50,000 kbps which is more than enough to download or stream movies in HD
3mbps will cost you more, and it will take some time to download these movies.

4.5 mbps for HDX at VUDU. Not sure what you have you can test it at VUDU when watching trailers.
