Fortune.com-I Covet My Neighbor's Broadband (It's About Time!)
Sometimes our DSL connection, provided to us by SBC, acts like a spoiled dog, fetching web pages and e-mail only when it feels like it. I even once tried plugging in a modem and dialing up to see if I could get a faster connection. I could. But when the DSL was working right, it felt really fast.I'm one of those neighbors and my experience is just what Mr. Alsop says. Cable is superior; DSL still has a ways to come. Now FTH sounds nice but how will that happen en masse? I'll wait for broadband wireless in the local loop. But for now, it's cable all the way.
