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

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

I think you mean SDSL, ADSL is big download small upload. 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.
