    I have a question about this dsl service. I have roadrunner through my cable company, but I set up my girlfriend with verizon dsl. It is still in its 30 day trial period. I have run several speed test through the dsl. The highest speed i can get with the dsl is 600-700kbps, while when I try the same with my cable I get anywhere between 4-5mbps. That is one hell of a bump. In about two months I plan on moving in with her, the only thing is that the dsl rate is at $29 a month with a 12 month contract. While my rr is $39 a month. Should I suffer through the slower service @ a cheaper price or just take my rr with me. She doesn't have cable she has dishtv.

    I have had Verizon DSL for three years and never noticed any speed deficiencies with online gaming.
