DSL is a little over priced I thank. The bad thing that comes to mind about DSL is range. DSL is only good from up to about half a mile (I forget the exact feet) from the center switching station. Passed that range the single lose on the wires makes it acts up. To see if you can even get DSL the phone company sends out a person to test the single. They plug a tester into the phone line and check it before even signing you up. I am right at the end of the range where I live at and they told me it may not work but was will to give it a try. I was just a little to far out. They are installing sub-switching stations to extend the range in a lot of areas so if you are out of range now you may not be later on. I would like to have DSL my self. I guess the only real down side in DSL is price.
