Quite a dilemma.. Why get 1.5Mbps DSL when 107Mbps cable is available. I was in a Verizon area, and they said they didn't want to deploy FIOS anymore.
Poo on the telcos.
Moe, I need your advice
See I've got this friend named Joey Joe-Joe... Junior... Shabadoo..

The best thing att can do is drop the capping bs. They would become the best isp overnight compared to anyone that caps.

Who cares about quad-play? Nowadays, it's cheaper to get all the services unbundled anyways. Noone uses quad play, it's stupid and there are not even any incentives at all whatsoever.
It's all about the money. There are scores of people who'd be fine with 3000/768 speeds--they just don't need 50/20 or even 15/2 speeds. But can they get it for the price it's worth? Nope! And these days it's worth about $15/mo. [if that]. If the telcos won't invest, then they need to go for the "value" market and drop their prices. If they aren't going to compete on product, then they need to compete on price.

My situation, described perfectly Bode could have been writing about my experiences. Just last month I moved my access to cable after at least a couple of decades with ATT.
I used them for long distance just due to their reputation. Then, they came out with the One Rate cell plan and no one was even close. After Southwestern Bell did their merger, all of my eggs were in one basket with ATT.
I was the guy all my friends would ask for tech advice, and I strongly supported DSL over cable. Back then, there was a real advantage but ATT simply threw it away.
Not too long after they started the Uverse push, my DSL began getting worse and worse. Terrible pings, amazingly high latency with the request dying between hops, a mail server that a couple times of week wouldn't accept my credentials -- it got really bad.
A couple of months ago, I had Charter come in (yes, I know, but absolutely no problems yet) and connect me. I ran a consistent 30/4 against the inconsistent 6/.7 from DSL.
So as of this month, I no longer have any business with ATT. Wish they would have paid attention to the business they had.
