DSL is better since you don't share, but it is often hard to get installed, and 
many people (like in California) were shut off with
less than a weeks notice because their carrier went out of business.

Cable is a fine alternative for home users where DSL is not available.

Problem is, most of the times there is no business quality service available 
(static IP's, some ports blocked, etc.)

I have not had an outage in over a year on Cablevision of NJ here in Jackson, 
NJ.

I did installation myself, just as easy as hooking up another TV to cable, 
plugged into my network card, done.  I was the first one
in my area to try it, had a few problems with line dropping, so cablevision was 
here 3 times to fine tune the line outside my house
(that was for the whole block), but they were responsive and even came on 
Saturday.
