    Yeah, congestion would come up more with DSL for me because the congestion happens inside my own network. If cable internet is congested in my neighborhood, I might drop down 15mbps. That is still almost 3 times average DSL speeds. I think if you are using DSL for cost reasons, that is one thing. But if you are using it because you are worried about network congestion, you probably haven't used cable internet in quite a while.

    It depends on how congested the cable company's node in your area is. In some places, too many people are on a single node and the cable company is just too cheap or lazy to upgrade it.

    People in my area get bad cable congestion at prime time. Too many people on a narrow pipe.

    Then, I'd definitely stick with what you have. Cable Internet over-subscription is so '00s.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. I actually asked this question for my brother. He eventually decided to go with Dish/Hopper. He just couldn't give up those channels and Dish gave him a good deal.
