Cable is faster and you might not be able to get DSL by you. Call your phone provider and ask.

Generally I think cable is faster. But you can buy faster bps rates in your cable plan. My home PC runs at abuot 2.8-3.0 Mbps download and around 2.0 Mbps for upload.

Anyone with DSL feel free to throw some numbers out here.

i have dsl and I'm no where near that. DSL speeds will vary by package you pay for and distance from the CO. Cable speeds vary greatly based on area saturation. Cable is shared bandwidth and DSL is not. You cannot easily say one is "faster" than another, its apples and oranges. They both have their benefits.

Check and see if cable is available for you as well as DSL. I still do not have cable for modem in my area and i just became ready for DSL over the summer.

Dsl is direct and Cable is a shared bandwidth i believe.

3-4 miles actually, but they tend to measure this in feet not miles.

Depends on the traffic Ken....generally speaking cable is faster assuming less than peak traffic. DSL is a more consistent speed. I'd go with cable....even at its slowest it;s still fast and when it's non-peak it's lightning fast. Plus I would imagine out there in Plainfield the nighborhood traffic would be considerably less with all the undeveloped land.

I don't think they'll gove it too you if your more than 3-4 miles away. From what I've seen anything after a mile starts suffering on speed

i concur with this, but still check out DSL packages. Cable modem will cost you close to 50 bucks a month since you dont have cable tv service, for that ammount you may be able to get a really fast DSL as well. Explore your options!

3-4 miles is the extreme distance limitation on digital subscriber line technology. other factors contribute as well. I'm 10000 feet from the central office and use my DSL no problem, never had an outtage. I wouldnt use DSL if I was over 2 miles away though.
