Which is better? Cable Internet or DSL
« on: May 23, 2002, 08:57:39 AM »
I am considering broadband (dialup sux).  I was wondering which is better, Cable or DSL.  Also, which broadband provider is better.

Another question, does Eastern Telecom serve home users?  I have only seen them connecting corporate clients.

parehong may trade offs eh, IN PAPER, mas mabilis ang Destiny Cable dahil naka sulat sa ad nila ay UP TO 8Mbps ang speed nila wherein ang DSL (personal plan) ay 128Kbps lang BUT......shared bandwidth and Destiny!! kaya nga pag sa tanghali ay minsan 1k lan

Does anyone know the price of GLobenet's DSL?

Also, can anyone answer my question on Eastern Telecoms po
