    if you only surf, stay on 56k

    If you do get ADSL, make sure that you buy your own modem prefrebaly one that runs above 512K and you may be able to capp your connection and achive a higher speed.

    nearly all adsl/ethernet modems are capable of much more than 512k down

    also, you mean uncap the modem...

    DSL can&#39;t be uncapped. the bandwidth is regulated on the ISP&#39;s end.

    with 512kbps bandwidth you should get about 50-60kbps effective download speed, give or take a few.

    Definitely go for ADSL, you&#39;ll significantly be pleased with a significant increase, you&#39;ll never have to dial-up again and it won&#39;t tie up the phone. There&#39;s hardly a price difference, the upgrade per month for ADSL, for me, was 5.
