Vonage I'll add my 2 pennys worth to the discussion I have 2 cable modems and a DSL line

I'll add my 2 pennys worth to the discussion
I have 2 cable modems and a DSL line at home - I've used the Vonage on both.

Cable line #1 - 2048/256
Cable line #2 - 512/128
Cable line #3 - 512/256

I've tried the Vonage on all - and it seems great regardless of which it's on.

My traceroutes look as follows

Pretty similar regardless of which connection is used. Over here (I'm in the UK if you didnt catch on all ready) - cable has much less latency than Cable - I guess thats because all our cable networks have been put in within the past 5 years pretty much - so most, if not all are fibre right up to the neighbourhood level.

Incidentially - most of the latency you see above comes from level3 - on the transatlantic side of things.
On my ISP in london - we have a 100mb link to Level3 - and traces look like this...

odie# traceroute

9 ( 69.343 ms 69.480 ms 69.211 ms
10 ( 69.535 ms 69.616 ms 70.598 ms

Anyhow - hope someone can make sense of all that :)

Cable for me. I was a very early adopter of DSL back in the PhoenixDSL days.
I've never compared the two, but I'll put in my 2 cents. I like cable for 2 reasons.
I'm happy with my cable with 2 down and 300+ up. Once in a while I get some echo and
My vote goes to cable. I have had DSL for years but the farther you are from the phone
