Just to be the Devil's Advocate, I'm gonna say Verizon.

I hate Comcast, they offer good service but like to rip people off and show everyone their "Comcast Cares" crap all over Cache Valley. They have a monopoly on the high-speed internet here and no one can help but give their money and rights to their firstborn to Comcast. And with those rates, Comcast can make sure no one comes into Cache Valley to compete.

[/rant]

Go with Comcast. They offer good service and as much as I like Verizon, they should stick to cellular service until they command a loyal following in the ISP market.

out of those choices cable, but your bes bet would be to just go to college early and get T3. (or skip college and take a wireless card to get it for free)

cable goes through your cable line and is fast and cool

dsl goes through your phone line and is slow and has to connect and is ****

DSL isn't actually any faster than cable, a lot of people will try to pull that BS.

Cable is a direct line into your house, so therefore any of your neighbors using the same service will get a service outage if the cable ever goes out.

DSL is more finnicky, costs more money (since it is a direct line for just you) and is overrated in speed. Let's take a look:

Cable: caps out at 30 MBPS
DSL: caps out at 10 MBPS

Only thing is that speed with cable depends on local traffic, since you share the connection with your neighbors using the same service. DSL is a direct line, but its lower speed usually doesn't make up for the 20 MBPS difference between the two services.


Another thing that may kill your potential DSL connection is distance from the provider. That means that the farther you are from the facility your Direct Service Line (DSL) connection is, the slower it will be.




tl;dr


Cable > DSL

No matter what people say. Cable taps.

i think i also heard something that the thicker the cable is the faster data can travel since it can allow more data movement at one time

lets put it this way, my router is in my basement, my computer is up stairs, meaning i am 2 flights away from my router. Id say im a good 100 feet away from my router, but i still get 2000kbps on my wirless network

and people say wireless networks arent for gaming

oh and i have comcast which advertises like 3500kbps

apparently comcast was started when this one town didnt have cable so one guy just set up a small cable thing for his town...and then it expanded from there.......i hate people and their dumb luck

just like that kellog guy...he started as a truck driver and then became the head of the damn company jeez
