Hey all I've been living out in the sticks for a year now and Verizon just finished their part to get DSL to us country folk Smile I just got off the phone with Verizon and here is what they say:

Only option I have:
57 - 60 bucks a month
768 down
128 up

I've never had DSL and when I did have cable I wasnt into the speed thing. Those of you who have DSL what speeds are you getting and what do you pay a month? It seems to be a good deal, but I'm trying to see if I should wait another month or so for Cable. Trying to get the specs on the cable option.

I would choose the DSL, i did get 1.5/256 until a few days ago where my dsl got upgraded to 3.0/384. The reason I say dsl, is most dsl ISP's don't block ports so you can host your own webserver and stuff.

well all the big cable companies don't either. I know Cox(I work for Cox...), Comcast, and Roadrunner don't.

I'd go with DSL as well. Usually the pings are a lot more stable than cable.
