dsl vs cable


OSNN Senior Addict
there is a good deal in my area that may persuade me to switch from comcast to verizon but i want to know if it's worth it.

verizon dsl Up to 3 Mbps/768 Kbps w/ phone $70mnth
comcast With speeds up to a blazing 6 Megs w/phone $100mnth

the price is much cheaper with verizon but i care about reliability and service as well as speed. i do use bittorrent a lot so i want to ensure that will work the same and i am behind a router. any advice?

thanks and sorry is this is an old topic. i did a search but didn't find the exact info i was looking for.

stay with comcast, dsl can and does go out a lot, especially in the early hours of the morning...

every type, company, services have there problems. I have always gone with cable companies, because there usually cheaper.

First off, your prices are abnormally high for your area. I have seen both for near half the price.

That being said, try the DSL out if you want. Most ISPs will give you a 30 day trial or something, where you can cancel with little or no penalty.

Also, if you go to Comcast saying you want to cancel, sometimes they will give you a 3, 6 or 9 month promotional rate.

Play hardball, you may get good results :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
