cable is still better
cable is shared, DSL isn't. If executed properly, DSL is better.
In my area, i've tried both, cable is better for me.
I agree with stank. One of the major disadvantages of cable is that it is shared. which is a big problem if you live in a neighborhood with a bunch of kids sharing their whole hd on kazza. so thne your speed could drop to like 40 kb/s
im lucky then most the kids on my block are really youn or around 13 or so... doesnt slow my cable at all (i dont have it wireless and its on my playstation at the mement )
i live in a neighborhood where not a lot of people have net access period.....it rocks, cuz my cable is always pretty fast....
lucky you heh, well the thing is i dont know anyone on my block and i lived here for 13 years (theyy all move)
I don't think anyone else has Adelphia Powerlink on my block, but ill ask around to see about how fast my connection will be.

I got Adelphia Powerlink and it is TEH AWESOME. I've gotten speeds of up to 5 Mbs wiz it.
Yeah, it is better than dial up, with my mom offline upstairs :grr: I can get downloads of up to 31kps!! Which is ten times better than what I have been getting!!!
im on dsl, and it's nothing too fancy, 100+ is usually a good day for downloads. p2p is just awful, i think im a bit too far away from the switch, as i've never gotten anything over 180. and a few friends of mine are getting a meg+ on cable.

From what i can tell, it depends on your area, distance from switch, provider, and the quality or age of their systems.

That true, Dox must be close, while mine is like 30 miles south of here...
I think my co, where verizon distibutes its dsl (only dsl in my town), is useing relly old parts, n crap. thats why its not good
That makes more sense than any other explanation.
all the stuff at the first places to provide verizon dsl, are now useing, outdated, and old stuff, and they blew there budget on the original systems so they can't upgrade.
I think you've mentioned that in one of your other posts...
might of, not sure.
