    Which one do you use? Cable Modem, DSL Modem, or... the other one?

    I have been on a cable modem for years now and haven't had any problems really. Connection has always been fast, and has also been lag free for the most part.

    I hear DSL is more consistent, but I have yet to notice a slow time with cable..

    I have DSL, through Verizon. I've NEVER had a downtime or cut off. I'm serious, too. It's never lagged, ever. I get 135 kb/s on my speed tests, and I've seen speeds of 140-150 kb/s if I'm downloading from a fast server.

    I have Comcast cable. It's pretty fast most of the time. It's goes out every now and then though. Comcast just isn't very reliable, but unfortunately they have a monopoly on cable around here.

    I have used a Cable Modem for the last 3 years, and there is no way anyone could get me to switch... Its gone out on me a few times, but those were servicing issues

    I have cable. Never used DSL so I can't really say. I've had some problems with my Wifi and my laptop, but that's more of a router / ethernet card issue than the actual ISP. To my knowledge our service has never gone out except for planned and pre-announced servicing.

    I have cable and I love it. Don't think I would like anything slower.

    Years ago I used to have a really good DSl provider. But, I have no idea what happen to them. I think they went out of business. Now, I have optimun Online Cable. I guess it's pretty good.

    I have Comcast too. Have achieved speeds around 450 k/s at times, but it's usually not that fast.
