Go to the DSL right away and skip the hassle. The speed you will get now is not better than HSE by any noticable amount. They capped the speed at 1500/192 and raised the price by $5 a month. Stay away far far away

It doesn't matter if you're docsis or not, it depends if your area gets capped today, or next week. They all will get capped soon. As for Rogers, I was happy until last week when they capped my speed. This is a real pissoff. Like mrspec3 said, the speed is only a little bit faster than 1mbit DSL, so I would suggest you go for an independent DSL provider, NOT sympatico HSE. Those guys offer good prices, usually less than $40/month. I am going to stay with Rogers though, until they impose caps and i'll see what I will do then... Its not worth it for me to switch now.
