remember that DSL speeds will be slower and subject to throttling based on the distance from hub and number of users on the system.

with cable, youll have none of that.
Bull shite.

Comcast has the same problem. The more people with cable interwebz in your area, the slower your connectin.

do you want to confuse the OP with the absolute, 100% factual answer or give him the answer he needs in terms he can understand?

the difference between cable lag and dsl lag is comparable to the difference between banging a IRL 3 and an OT 10. yes, either way you are fricking but they really arent the same thing.

should i get the 25mbps package?



That's the slowest package they offer now.

25, 50, and 125 are the three tiers.

Cox still offers 1.5 and 5. I saw it when I checkes yesterday.

Had AT&T uverse at my old apt and it was awesome. Would have gotten it again but it wasnt available where I was moving so I'm moving to cox

That's a great thing they did in lafeyette. I wish more municipalities would stand up and fight back like that against the ISPs
