Default Netflix Streaming--Cable(Comcast) vs DSL(AT&T)

Hey all,

I'm going to be signing up for Netflix soon, with the intent of streaming a lot of videos. I currently have a 12MBps connection with Comcast, but I've heard a lot of concerns of throttling of streamed video. My other local option is a 6MBps AT&T DSL connection. Does anyone have any experience with either of these connections and Netflix? Any recommendations? I'm in CT, if it matters. Thanks!

Have they rolled out AT&T U-verse in your area yet? If so, I would look into that as you can get speeds that are comparable to what you have now and are more reliable since it's not a shared connection like cable internet is.

If in the case U-verse is not available, the 6mb/s tier is plenty fast for streaming video. I had that prior to upgrading my U-verse to 18mb/s and rarely had any issues. I got a heck of a deal to upgrade or I would have been perfectly happy with the 6mb/s.
