Broadband show down

I recently swathed from Verizon DSL to my Patriot Media’s broadband.  I was sick and tired of Verizon slow service and terrible customer service.  I also dropped Verizon local and long distance and now use Patriot’s VOIP phone service.  The cable broadband speed is excellent (7 MB/s) at the same price as Verizon DSL and the phone service is cheaper as well.

DSL Reports is running a news story about a report that suggests that cable may be winning the broadband battle with the telcos.  The report suggests that the cable companies may start reclaiming bandwidth from the unused spectrum freed up by the move from standard (SDTV) to high definition (HDTV) television.  I have been recently impressed by how fast and inexpensive my cable connection is compared to my previous DSL connection.  The report also suggest that the cable companies will have enough capacity and bandwidth to compete directly with the telcos fibre.  So maybe I’ll never have a need for Verizon FIOS.
