People usually stick to DSL For the reliablilty, and to try and minimize the chance of being on an oversold node.
I thought that first too. Then cable jacked up its speed (I use RR and OOL) so much that even at 1/3 or 1/2 of the advertised speed, IM STILL FASTER than DSL. Upload wise, MAYBE faster. Some cable ISPs have caps and throttling, which makes the upload useless. Some ISPs have 768K or 512K as standard (roadrunner). I have 20/1 RR, so it will always be faster than DSL, even on its worst day.
Point noted. I said my post since I comcast is the only thing offered in my area. It's a 8/512 (Maybe 768) tier for something of $59.99 a month I think.
I only pay around 36.99 for 6.0. I use a lot of torrent programs, and WoW does too, and that is a major factor on why I dont switch to cable.
