We are going to see alot of:
Shaw vs. Telus & Rogers vs. Bell comparions, which is good.
I find, for price, I get the better speeds from my cable company. For reliability, I find the cable stays on and is never down hardly ever. But for consistantsy of speeds that is a winner for DSL.
But with DSL the farther you live from that box or station, the lower your speeds are (right?)
I always found DSL could be down at certain times, it was never down for me.
Another plus for DSL is it has a Dynamic IP. If you encounter problems, you reset the modem, and get a new IP address. With Cable, your stuck with that IP unless they do a hard reset.
So the poll is asking, generally which is superior, but in the thread you can speak of local situations also.
