Brad, You are correct. I meant SDSL. And while our experience with DSL wasn't quite as bad as yours, it still was not stable. It was dropping about once a week. The resolution? Reboot the router (a CISCO 766). We've been on a T1 for about 6 months now and it hasn't gone down a single time. But this was also in the context of a backup to the T1. The point I was also trying to make is that I'm not sure about backing up a reliable service (T1) with an unreliable one (DSL). If your connection is important enough to warrant a backup, you probably need a reliable one! It sounds like you are recommending cable as a backup. If business cable is available, with reasonable upload speeds, then that might work quite well! I've had very good experience with my residential cable internet access.

We did try that when it first came out a year or two ago, sw bell could not keep it going 24 hours at a time. We had it in for 6 months, never could use it. <snip>
