Default DSL or Cable?

Verizon Fios or Cablevision.

I am located in North Jersey.

I look on google for comparisons but I never get a clear winner... Anyone have opinions?

For starters I would make sure that you have access to both of them from your home. You can check their websites, I am sure that they have info there. Next I would do a price comparison, and see how they compare to other options. Also, I would ask around. See if anyone around you has either of them and see what they say about service, reliability, stuff along those lines.

Cheers!

I don't care about price. I mean internet speed.

I prefer DSl, had cable for 2 months and it drove me insane. The DSL is really fast no complaints from me, would not use cable again

Verizon FIOS is the superior option, if you can get it, get it. No comparasion to cable, but fiber only has a 3% penetration rate.
