Currently, I have Comcast Cable, Cable Internet, and Verizon Home Phone Service. When I came home from school today, I found out that my mom got a special offer including DirecTV, Verizon Phone, and Verizon DSL and the services will be installed next week. The DSL is where I am really getting concerned. I have always heard that Cable internet is somewhat faster than DSL, although I've never actually has DSL (we jumped from Dial-Up to Cable back in the day). My mom told me that after running speed tests, that the Cable Internet that we have IS(!) faster than the DSL service we will be getting. I am really worried that my internet speeds will get really slow and just wanted to get your feedback on whether you think I will notice a difference. Here is just some info............... --According to speed tests on my laptop (both laptop and desktop run off of a router), we are now getting 894 kilobytes per second with our current cable service... that is only about one hundred kbps short of tier one service. Not sure about DSL speeds but I'm sure you could find out. --According to Google Maps, I live about 0.5 miles from the Verizon location.... I live in a town of about 2,000 people (some on Verizon, some on Comcast, some on Dial-Up) --there are two computers on our home network... one used constantly, one used moderately --i browse the web all the time, stream video from youtube, hulu, and online radio stations a good bit, and download songs from itunes --remember! this is my cable speeds vs. what i will get with dsl. --WHEN I SAY DSL, I MEAN DSL, FIOS ISN'T EVEN CLOSE TO HERE YET! keep this in mind. Thanks a lot for all your help.
