    Any opinions are appreciated. I currently have a cable connection but I am not quite satisfied with the speed. There are some great offers with the rival company but they use ADSL.

    So I was wondering if you guys can share some opinions regarding the technical aspects ? Which one is or could be better ? Thank you

    cable much better, ADSL make claims, but if you read the small print, they will usually have "up to", listed.

    I went with an ADSL company a while back because they were advertising 3mb upload, however once it was installed, my upload was only 0.7mb, they said "oh you are too far from the exchange, thats the best we can do".

    Just lies and marketing bullshit, stick with cable dude, upgrade your package if you want it faster, you wont get the advertised speeds if you go with ADSL.

    if you didn't pay for a static IP address, then you are assigned a new one every time you connect to your provider..cable or dsl

    it depends on where you live. ask your neighbors. cable speeds are highly dependent on your neighbors. adsl depends on the number of subscribers on the dslam, but not as much as cable
