DSL for me is pretty good. I always always always get 180K down, my cable friends get between 100-500 depending on the time, but a good 20% of the time is doesn't work or doesn't work properly. Costs more by a lot, just, ****ty.
I had Verizon DSL before I moved and, with some tweaks to Windows, I was getting 2.86 mbps down and in the neighborhood of 350-400K up. Now I'm stuck with sattelite at 1.01 down(on a good day)and 100 or below for up. It's still better than dial-up but it sucks to go backwards.:evil:
