I know that not something any of us think could happen, but given the way the spead of DSL is getting worse I have to wonder. Lately I have noticed that my DSL signal is slower then it has been in years. I know that DSL has grown in my area but the growth hasn't helped the connection but seems to have made it worse. I now feel at times as if I am back on dial up instead of DSL. Now maybe DSL isn't on the way out and being replaced by cable high spped Internet, but in order to survive it might need an over haul. In other words work done on its signal. Otherwise if I could ever afford to do so, I am switching from DSL to a high speed cable Internet service.
