    i believe cable is generally faster, but needs a dedicated phone line, where as ADSL (Asynchronious Digital Subscribers Line) doesnt, allowing phone and data connections simultaneously.

    thats a factor to consider...., also how much speed your after etc....:confused:

    well my current hookup is through the cable company (coax type cable), and it screams! but i was thinking about the sbc(ameritec) phoneline dsl they show on tv ads now, and wonder if its generally as fast as cable, or what. they claim its about the same but......?

    recent I had to make a choice between SBC dsl and ComCast Cable ....I ended up choosing Cable and I'm glad I did. At the time I did some research on both and the more I read about SBC and it's dsl service the less I liked. I don't know about time warner service, but I'm willing to bet you will be happier with it over sbc's dsl ...besides, AFAIK cable is usually a better option anyway
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    I too use cable and am greatly pleased with it. I had a buddy who decided to go with SBC DSL service because of the costs involved... he changed back to cable in under a month.
