Geek squad, I need some advice...
I have been pretty happy with my cable modem service that I have had for the past 5 years or so. The new area that I am moving to is not serviced by the cable provider that I am currently using.
What are my options for high speed internet? I heard DSL sucks and I know that the local cable company where I am going is kind of pricy for internet services.
I want to keep my bill down but have fast, reliable service. Any suggestions?

I don't have any problems with DSL. I've had Bellsouth (now part of AT&T) for 5 years or so.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\

I've had AT&T DSL for about 9 months and we love it. Never had any problems and it's soooo much faster than the dial-up that we converted from. It's only $15 a month too.

DSL is fine - it'll slow your gay porn downloads slightly, but you won't notice that much difference and it's a good deal cheaper.
I of course will not stand for that, so I pay for the cable

Nothing wrong with DSL as a technology. Often the pricing is higher than cable on a bandwidth comparison, but that, of course, varies by location.
I'd check to see what options are available and see what service ratings they get in the area. Also check to see which have a 30 day test period - if they suck then you're not out anything (or might be out install depending on how their test period is written).

I have DSL through Verizon and haven't been completely happy with it.
It is slow in the evening and weekends, high winds and rain sometimes will make me drop service, and for some unknown reason I get logged off at any given time for no reason.
I was told cable or DTV is best, but another option - FIOS.
Might be an option in your area too.
