DSL seems to suck, especially when its PPPOE. -PhillipI 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.
