I work for a DSL, ISP so I may be partial. But far as I can tell DSL would be the better one. But there are so many variables. Some area's have old Copper lines and DSL goes down and is shitty in those areas. If I was there I would naturally go with cable. If I was in an area with good lines and reliable DSL service I would go with DSL because of the fact that you have your own set bandwidth. So your speed will always been reltivly the same unless its on the backbone. Where as cable everyone shares the same "Pipe" and your speeds can drop if a number of people get in and start dl'ing music or what not. So I think it al depends on where you live.

A lot of ppl mentioning cables large fluctuation, but I must say I used cable starting 3 years ago and have used it off and on without many complaints at all. DSL sucked for a while, but even the one broadband service we have here isn't too bad, so it must have come a long way. Nowadays, I would say, if delivery of either isn't the issue, then its not a big deal. Most people going to have speeds capped at same rate regardless of medium.
