Since its the same, go with the cheapest?

I'm on Orange myself, and while I've never had any problems its not be so great speed wise lately.
Though there is like 30 people shareing 2 houses on my street and apparantly they have a good number of laptops between them.

Doesn't DSL have the same download and upload speeds? Oh wait that's SDSL.

I'm not sure of the difference between DSL and ADSL except ADSL is Asynchronous..

DSL is ADSL or SDSL without the letter infornt to indicate which it is. I assume its probably just ADSL, not many places offer SDSL to the home user in the UK.

most home DSL services are ADSL, unless they explicitly say something else

I have ADSL here and do not like it. The upload speed is painfully slow.

I think every service may have different speeds so the devil is in the details. Read the specs carefully!
