DSL vs. Cable

So, I’ve got Earthlink DSL. It’s reasonably fast, it’s an average price, dealing with their phone support makes me want to die…

AT&T Broadband has been running a promotion which features free installation and a free modem as well as only costing $20/month for the first six months. Which is a pretty good deal.

Moreover, CNET’s bandwidth tester tells me that my bandwidth is 1127 Kbps but that AT&T Broadband can do 1500 Kbps. (How it can accurately calculate my bandwidth I have no idea.)

So: Any recommendations? Endorsements? Warnings? Opinions? Much thanks.
