I live in Australia so there may be some local terms used which I don't understand, but from my perspective..
1. 'Broadband' and 'High Speed' are (so far as I know) general terms which apply to a whole range of possible service speeds so I guess the short answer is YES but it depends how technical you are being.
2. YES most definitely, particularly with downloading larger files, images etc.
3. Depends on what's available where you live. Here most ISPs offer broadband (usually ADSL) connection so once its installed you just change to a different plan with your ISP. We only have 2 or 3 cable providers so if I wanted cable broadband I would have to change ISP to get that.
4. Can't answer that one - go online and check your local ISP websites for their plan rates.
5. Certainly not. That's what this site is all about - answering computing questions.
