How does this access method compare to Cable and/o
  As with any Internet connection your provider is sharing access (bandwidth) with all of it's customers, so your most limiting factor is the amount of bandwidth the ISP has available. Cable and DSL charge enticingly low rates for what they call "high speed access," which might seem like a good thing, but charging so little means there is not enough money coming in to provide the bandwidth needed for your customers, so typically you will find your connection slows drastically when other people are using it heavily. You seldom actually get the speed they boast you will. You get what you pay for. You'll realize this to be true as more and more cable and DSL providers are putting speed controls on the customers. Cable and DSL are not available in the area here, and probably won't be for at least a year. DSL has a major limitation - Distance. DSL slows down the further away from the Telco CO your connection is, and doesn't work at all if you are more than 18,000 feet away (About 3 to 4 miles).
