It's not a matter as to whether DSL is "better" than cable, or not. It just depends on the level of service they are willing to provide, or you're willing to buy. Sprint's DSL can be upgraded for I think $10-$15/month to provide 1.5Mb/S. My brother-in-law did it.

Another interesting thing to consider is that the telephone infrastructure tends to be more robust than that of the cable companyies. I just survived Hurricane Charley, and while I had telco and DSL the entire time, I can tell you that the cable TV hardline is still laying in the roads.

Just another datapoint.
