Stability
C Cable
Despite the impressive speed, cable is the least stable
service. This is because of it's shared connection.

To compensate for this, a good cable provider
generally runs at speeds faster than advertised.

D DSL
DSL is slightly more stable than cable and less stable
than T1. The draw back however is its availability.

T T1
T1 wins at stability. As a direct service, your neighbors
have no affect over your bandwidth. The cost to speed
is hard to justify but if stability is mission critical you
can't beat it.

Fact, if there is a major outage, whatever the cause,
carriers are actually required by law to fix T1 service
before they can work on other services like DSL.
