cable is still better

cable is shared, DSL isn't. If executed properly, DSL is better.

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 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.

all the stuff at the first places to provide verizon dsl, are now useing, outdated, and old stuff, and they blew there budget on the original systems so they can't upgrade.
