For the past several years I have been utilizing Cox Communications High-Speed Internet meaning that I am using a cable modem to access the Internet from home. At the time we moved into our home the phone company was not yet offering DSL in adequate speeds due to the length our house was from the trunk it would be a long time before DSL would be an option.
Since we have Cox Communications engineers living in our neighborhood the lines running to the junction box were very clean and the speed was very good. The problem with cable modem service has always been that the more people that use the service in an area the slower it got. In our case, I have not noticed a significant slow down as new users have come on.
