With DSL, here's the thing:

 

More consistent upload speed and better ping, but it comes with a cost.  The closer you are to their hub/connection center, the better off you are.  The opposite is also true.  I would talk to a knowledgable rep at the DSl company and get real answers.

 

I played on a 12mps DSL connection for years, and loved it - but I was less than a mile from their station.

Who's your cable provider?

I have cable and it suppose to run at 101mbps.

Really runs about 82-86.

I recommend Vodafone, this 1mb Down deal I'm getting right now is fantastic.
