    In Australia most of the country has ADSL2+, however given that we're all so far away from the exchange most people get less than 10mbit, for example I get 4mbit on a good day

    However we have the NBN coming!

    Re: DSL || CABLE || Mobile Broadband Which one do you prefer ?

    I looked around quite a lot before deciding on VirginMobile (Mobile BroadBand). Cable doesn't come as far as my house and the phone lines here are a joke. I checked other Mobile BroadBand companies but decided to go with a prepay system. I have used Tracfone (also prepay) for more than 10 years and I like the freedom.

    The only adjustment I made was to add an external antenna to get better signal strength in my house - a mobile home.

    For me mobility counts a great deal.

    Live in Minnesota and use Comcast cable. Have Ooma VOIP so the latency over DSL would probably not allow that to work. Get 14MB download and 3MB upload for $40 US a month.

    Thanks to everyone for their replies.

    I am atm using Airtel 3G. Its expensive, unreliable in terms of signal stability. Therefore I am

    moving back to DSL which I foolishly cancelled in favor of mobile broadband. I will be leaving

    3G in one or two days & go back to DSL.


    We don't have cable here in our locality.

    Using DSL now, but I'm eagerly awaiting FIOS, which they're rolling out in my neighborhood in the next few weeks.

    Make sure you check the experiences of other FiOS users. Where I live I've heard of a lot of problems, including slow speeds and Verizon's installers requiring multiple appointments to get the installation working.

    I am a former Clearwire tech support rep and i feel that mobile broadband is just for laptops and not home use (Unless grandma wants some cheap internets).
    A young man once challenged me to hack his computer, i told him to stand by and promptly returned with an axe.
