Thanks to everyone, this has pretty much been covered. The modem rental on DSL 25 again is a Bell requirement, DSL has more upload but requires an analog home phone line. If you do not have home phone (or you do but it's digital or VOIP) then you need dry loop which increases the price. Cable then, is often better speed (on download anyway) for less.
Over all performance/stability for both should be strong but it will depend on your location (local congestion? older phone wiring? too far from CO to receive 10Mb up?) if you post your rough location you may be able to get some nearby users to share their experience. -- TSI Keith (E-Services) - TekSavvy Solutions Inc.
