I have been using cable internet service for the last few years. I believe our nominal download speed is 5 mb/s, but most of the online connection speed meters I have tried read about 3.5 or so. The available options are 3, 5 or 10 mb/s. The phone co. called my XYL to-day and gave her a sales pitch for DSL. The cost would be a little less than what we are now paying for cable, and the maximum nominal speed they offer is 6 mb/s, whereas the cable max is 10 mb/s. I have been relatively satisfied with our cable service, even though like most cable companies, their tech support sucks, but we haven't had a lot of problems lately to cause us to need it. When we first upgraded from dial-up, DSL wasn't available at this QTH and cable was the only alternative. The phone co. says that DSL now available, but their website indicates that they cannot guarantee a download speed until the installation techs come out and check the line, and capabilities may vary according to location. My gut feeling is if it ain't broke, don't fix it. But just wonder if anyone else has had experience with both types of service, and any opinions about how one compares to the other? One concern I have had about DSL is digital white noise trash causing radio interference, similar to the hash reportedly caused by Homeplug in-house BPL devices. However, my cable modem dumps spurs throughout the HF range, about every 30 kHz. It isn't really a nuisance on 160-75-40, but if I wanted to work the higher frequencies, I would probably shut off the modem before going on the air. Our present cable service, and the DSL service the phone co. is offering are both in the $40/month range.
