What is the max bandwidth in which a cable line can operate at? Either up/down or combined.

Well like what are ISP's "able" to offer to their customers?

Also why does cable "share" its connection with others, and boggs down in peak times while DSL doesnt?

I'd love to have a fiber line, but its like 80 grand a month :(

Verizon FiOS is Fiber Optic. They do like 5 Mbps d/1 Mbps u, 15 Mbps d/3 Mbps u, and 30 Mbps d/5 Mbps u. I have the 15 Mbps and I only pay like $42.00 total very month.

Cable can do about 48 Mbps. They share a local pipe that runs higher than that, but not much. They share the cable because thats the way the cable TV was run, they just added the higher frequencies to make it digital capable with internet.

Comcast came through my area and replaced all their coax with fiber as well. So now the cable modem doesn't lag.

DSL sucks hardcore anything more than a few miles from a local station, and forget about it if you have multiple computers. Its major sucky.
