Am I crazy to always opt for DSL?? I question myself because I'd never tried Cable, but it's to my understanding that you don't always get the rated speed. See my options are go for a 16mbps DSL (Pioneer, a very small outfit) or a 32mbps Cable line (Comcast) for about the same price (though the Cable does get more expensive after 6 months whereas the DSL gives you 9. DSL requires a phone line cable doesn't though). Basically, what's the benefits/ criticisms of both? And no, it's not that fancy shmancy optical DSL either but... Back when I DID have optical DSL (whatever that is, I just know it required an extra switch box and more bleemin' fancy crap so it can't be the same ol' DSL you'd find in the old days...) I found out that most servers can't handle more than about 14mbps anyway... but just for my own curiosity, what's the bottom line on Cable v DSL? My info is that while DSL lines are uber affected by your distance from the colo, Cable lines are shared among all the users in your neighborhood. So if nothing else I just keep to DSL just to be nice . Is there any dif in your ping or anything else anybody might add?
