Re: dsl 15Mbits or Cable 35Mbits

What exactly is it that you need the speed for ? In many situations people get a faster connection for no good reason at all. I think usage has been the biggest issue for some time now. Again what exactly are you doing with your internet ?

For most people, the main motivation for 12-20Mbps is 2-3 people streaming from Youtube, Netflix or similar at the same time. Beyond that, details usually become sketchy.

Personally, I schedule all my non-essential downloads during unlimited off-peak hours so I only need ~7Mbps to stream the occasional 1080p video.
