I have PacBell DSL at my office and Cox @home cable modem service at home. I do
notice periods of slow response on the cable modem. This is not all the time
but it can be painfully slow in the evenings. I think this has something to do
with how many users are online with the cable system at the same time. I have
never found any variation in the DSL modem's response. By the way, I have
identical computers at home and at the office. Same browser etc.
If DSL is available, I would pick it over cable.
