Not in Tulsa. I have T-1 at work and cable at home. I have 25
employees. A number of them started on DSL and went to Cable,
they all love cable and would never consider going back to DSL.

'The DSL isn't shared' lie is a marketing lie. It is completely
untrue. All internet access is shared, that's why it's the
internet. Cable acccess is faster and more reliable, and the
fact that the signals are shared at the neighborhood level
rather than a mile away at the phone exchange means nothing.
Nada. Zip. What matters most, beyond the initial speed where
cable is far better, is the upstream bandwidth the service
provider has. So far in this area, it's cable by far.

And if the feds would remove the artificial barriers to home
phone service, you phone service would come over your cable
also, and be better quality and probably cheaper to boot.
