    it depends on the growth of the area and it's relation to the number of users on cable modems. cable modems are shared bandwidth, so the more users in your area, the slower the performance may prove to be. dsl doesn't need to worry about scaling to meet multiple users. cable has more bandwith vs. dsl, but in actual use, you'll probably not see a huge difference between them. beyond bandwidth, there are other things to consider, much of it being bundled servics available through your cable provider.

    here's a link i just sent my mom relating to the topic:

    I suppose it depends on the price difference between the two where you live, but I'm getting rid of cable at the end of this month and getting DSL. My friend just got DSL and it renders web pages almost as fast as my cable connection. I was just over there today and downloaded a few things. I downloaded the same things here after I got home for a comparison and the downloads only finished about 2-3 seconds faster with my cable connection. Cable costs $30 more/moth here, so for me it's not worth it.
