OUCH.  Personally I prefer Cox cable.  DSL seems to suck, especially 
when its PPPOE.



I dunno, I have SBC and my 3Mb/512kb is pretty nice, with speeds
comparable to cable and I don't have to share the bandwidth with
everyone in my neighborhood.  Plus, I have a /29.  The PPPoE aspect is
handled by the Cayman Netopia bridging router they gave me.

Interesting...Where are you located?  DSL just never has seemed to work very well here...drops the connection a lot--at various locations, not just one.  The system was down most of the day on Friday for a lot of people in fact...  normally its just annoying because the modem needs to be reset at a lot of locations.
