Switch from WOW cable to SBC DSL for $26.99. 5 times as fast. Even AR15.com is coming up fast. I cant believe I wasted all that time with cable.

Had exact opposite experience going from SBC DSL to RoadRunner. I think there are just a lot les folks pluggin up the pipe out where I live. Glad to hear you're seeing an improvement, though. Rock on!

I have both cable and DSL. My cable connection is way faster than DSL. 3x FASTER!!!!!!!!!!!

Sounds like your cable company was skimping on the feeds. Cable should be significantly faster than dsl, although except for big or bigger downloads I doubt many would notice.

I went with dsl as the cable boneheads around here can't successfully supply a one way TV signal let alone 2 way communication.
