all of you stop fighting, this was suppose to be a friendly thread with debates, not immature squabbling. As for DSL or Cable, RCN is coming with a new service they call Mach 3, Mach 5, and Mach 7, these all refer to the speeds. Mach 5 is 5gbite/sec. This blows away anything else, and is very cheap. I am probably getting this as they bundle it with television and phone.

The only thing RCN has available for me is slow dial-up, again. I sent them my contact info so if they have services in my area, they will contact me. I'm still stuck with cable.

first of all if you say cable is the best you probably havent had dsl. dsl is much cheaper and I cant even tell the difference when using cable. I started with dsl like 4 years ago then switched to cable but I didnt like it so im back at dsl.
