I haven't compared cable speeds with DSL speeds. I do know that ISP's offer different DSL speed packages to their customers. Higher speeds = higher cost. Residential customers generally will have higher download speeds than upload speeds because these people generally download a lot more than they upload. The speed is measured by the bandwidth. Speed is affected by the quality of the phone lines both inside and outside the house. Distance to the central office or hub of the DSL provider also affects speed: the greater the distance the slower the speed.
