DSL can get speeds of up to 7 Mbit down and 768kbit up if you're close
to the CO. Cable gets faster. DSL is a dedicated line for just your
use. Cable around here is a shared line between you and your
neighbors. You are provisioned a certain piece of the overall
bandwidth, and they hope not everyone is using much of it at any given
Honestly, I have both on my network. I prefer my DSL line, but the
cable line is much better for large downloads at off-peak hours. It has
its ups and downs for performance. The DSL line is either working great
or (rarely) down completely. This is usually Qwest's fault, but I have
xmission and they tend to come clean immediately when its their fault.
So yeah. Trade-offs all over the place, and it depends on what you want
to do with the line.
