Re: Cable vs. DSL - which to choose? I'm in Videotron-land, it has been aggregated for several years already.
I'm not going to order POTS for my next apartment, I do not want to pay $8 dry-loop and 10/1.5 cable is twice as fast as 6/0.8 DSL for $5/month less than dry-DSL or $20/month less than wet-DSL. Unless ADSL2 becomes cheaper with lower/no dry-loop charge, Videotron-TPIA seems like the most logical choice to me. (Though I have had bad luck with dying modems back when I was with Videotron so I'm a bit wary there.)
