I've been on cable internet for almost a decade now, but I'm interested in switching to DSL in the name of lower monthly bills.
It all depends on one thing: Lag. I still enjoy playing online games on my 360 (as some of you know), and I'm concerned that by switching to DSL my lag will go from where it is now to something noticeably worse.
Right now, when things are as they should be, cable internet is pretty damn good in the lag department. It's not perfect, it will occasionally get laggy, but when it's going well, it's going VERY well.
I'm curious to read the opinions of DSL gamers about their lag. Have you always had a type of DSL? What "speed" or "level" of DSL do you have? (I believe it's usually offered in different tiers of speed/price).
Ultimately, I know cable is what I'd prefer to DSL in the download/upload speed department when it comes to transferring files, but I'm hoping that when it comes to what is required for a smooth online game with little to no lag, the difference is negligible. Am I close here?
