SPEED - DSL does NOT share your speed with neighbors like cable.
Cable offers packages with higher speed potential, but cable connections have a pipe to the Internet that is shared with others in your area.
Your speed can vary significantly depending on how many neighbors are online and sharing that one pipe at the same time (i.e. evenings)
MTCO's broadband connection to the Internet is a pipe of fixed-sized directly to the Internet and is not shared with anyone in your area.
Cable is potentially faster AND potentially slower than DSL.
People in your area filling up your shared pipe = less bandwidth for you!
Speeds are mostly guaranteed because you are not sharing bandwidth with neighbors giving you a more reliable, steady connection.
NON-PROMOTIONAL RATES - why choose cable's teaser rates that increase automatically...and frequently.
