Re: Happier With DSL
said by Black_Mage:Although this issue has little to do with cable vs. DSL (both are capable of stable pings, even if Black_Mage's cable ISP did a poor job of it in his neighborhood), it does nicely demonstrate why it's good to have a choice. If DSL dies off, the only choice most of us will have is cable. With no competitive pressure, how well do you think they're going to maintain their network?
I switched to DSL after moving. I had cable before. I get 12 Meg download speed and 768 K up. The speed is slightly faster for a couple bucks more than what I was paying for 10Meg Cable, and the huge advantage is my ping times in WoW have been cut by almost 50%. Makes cable look really bad. My only gripe is that both cable and DSL ISPs are stingy with upload speed.
