    Hi guys i just switched over to comcast internet from At&t dsl elite package which was 6Mbps/768Kbps. I switched over because i was tired of lagging in games im wondering if i made a mistake. Because im starting to hear from people that cable sucks and i always thought it was faster.. they havent installed it yet but im Jw so could i get some opinions.... So Which is better for xbox live cable or dsl?

    i got the performance package from comcast which is speeds up to 12Mbps..

    I heard that comcast was good. I had DSL and I agree, It is very laggy for know reason. It lags when one person is on youtube, it's terrible. It was once lagging when I was playing Xbox live and knowone else was on the network and it was during the winter and I ask my dad, "Why am I lagging?" to which he responded, "Because Water Freezes in Winter." So, I guess that means DSL can't stand up to Chicago Winter Weather.

    Ya, well... I've also done a little bit of standbying since then. lol. But now I have AT&T U-Verse. Which is pretty good, but not the best, but DEFINATLY better than my old DSL.

    I have had comcast high speed for as long as I have lived in this house. Honestly, the connection is simply awesome. I would always get host in CoD4, and GoW2 just from searching for a game because the connection is very good. I have never had any problems and I have never experienced any lag. The only time I ever had problems was when I had a broken router and it would constantly drop my connection but that has nothing to do with the actual connection as it is perfect. I get very fast download and upload speeds and it is honestly a good investment. However I might be switching to Verizon FIOS when it becomes available in our area but I will research it, chances are I won't because my connection is already good as anything.

    I get host a lot but I lag hard with 8+ people.

    I hate Comcast... Yeah it's the best, but it's so ****ing unreliable... Sometimes it's down, sometimes it's up...
