For several reasons, including the saving of money, I am considering the following ....
(1) To discontinue Internet Service from the local cable company, a 1.5G speed connection which by itself costs $43 a month including modem rental.
(2) To replace my current voice landline (average monthly cost of $60) with a DSL-only connection. I was hoping to get the fastest possible speed (6G), but only the 1.5G speed is available at my current apartment address. Even so, the per-month cost would be about $40.00.
Suggestions - and proper steps - to transitioning from cable internet to DSL welcome. I realize that some folks may wish to add personal complaints about cable and/or phone service. Respectfully, I ask that such complaints not be included. Short, simple do's and do not's will suffice.
I say go for it. I have had DSL for years. It is easy to set up and you don't have to share your bandwith. You may get special pricing for the first year and sometimes AT&T will give you a rebate for switching from cable to DSL.
I have never had cable Internet but I understand it's speed can slow down in the evenings and weekends when lots of people are on the cable node you share.
DSL means no sharing.
