    Maybe you're getting better speeds than the rest of the users on 1.5Mbps and 3Mbps that Verizon is offering in our area here.

    Verizon and AT&T both have plans over 25Mbps. I am getting 10Mbps from another carrier.

    I've said it all along. DSL is fast dialup. Nothing more.

    DSL is dedicated broadband.

    Cable is shared broadband.

    In theory, DSL is the superior technology. The difference is that the cable companies have newer cable plants in the ground and are therefor currently able to offer greater speeds in some cases.

    With copper bonding and money being spent on fiber, that's changing.. quickly.

    In my area, my phone company offers DSL from 6Mbps ($29.99) to 18Mbps ($45) on a single pair, with 1Mbps upload standard, or 2Mbps for $5/mo more. With a bonded connection 30/3 is common, and they will work with you to get whatever speed you want to have.

    Which is much better than Comcast, which tops out at 20Mbps, but rarely gives customers more that 5Mbps. It is even better than Broadstripe, which actually drops off 5-6 times per day, and rarely delivers more than 1Mbps.
