Clinton Hammond2 Tech: DSL or RoadRunner (22) DSL And Cable 30 Nov 00

DSL and Cable both have ups and down... and in the end they both sorta boil down to being about equal...

Cable is blazing fast... until all the folks in your neighbourhood get in it as well nad you all log on at the same time... then things can get a little slow... But those times when you're the only one on... WOW!!!

DSL... you speed is set... it depends on how close you are to the nearest switching station... Right next door, and yer cookin' with gas... 15 blocks further down... you may as well be on a 56K phone modem....

What decided it for us was, locally the DSL providers only granted one user account per house... one email addy, one web space and the cable company offered 5... which has since been upgraded to 7 I think... at 5 or 10 megs of web space each... so if I were to activate all my possible accounds I could potentially make a web page that was about 50 megs big... Minus the space the wifes account takes up... What a great porn site THAT would be eh!
