We're on our way to digital cinema and need our internet hook up. What do you prefer? We have many choices from DSL to Cable TV modem (which I like because then we'd get the cable stuff too, and a few other options. We're in a pretty well wired location. What do you like? And yes: I know we need the static ISP.

I think you've answered your question pretty well, Mike. DSL and cable are pretty much interchangeable in this regard, especially since speed isn't an issue. If you get to the point where actual content might be delivered, then a really good cable or fiber feed would probably be best.

Static IPs have become much easier to get. I think I'm paying $5 to $12 per month on the accounts I have statics on, and that depends on how many ips you decide you need. However, if you have any problems getting statics, you can always use DNS services like No-IP.com or dyndns.org. You can program the DYN service directly into many routers. NO-IP has a small program that runs on any computer on your network and reports the current IP address.

... and hey... once you're wired, you can add internet-based credit card processing to your business... very fast! :-)

I prefer a cable modem its far more reliable. DSL tends to have to be power cycled regularly by unplugging and replugging it. Ive had far less internet downtime with cable vs DSL or any other kind

Must be something local. I take care of 6 broadcast transmitters in remote locations with DSL, two with cable and another couple with fiber connections. I never have to reset any of them.

My DSL has worked great at our theatre. I am suppose to upgrade this week to U-Verse for the same price and 4x speed of what I had.
