I'm investigating a new ISP for my small to medium sized business. 
At the moment we have SDSL 1.5 Mb for about $269/month from Earthlink.

I can get 50 down/10 up from Comcast (cable) for about $200/month.

I can get 3 down/768K up from Verizon dsl for about about $100/month.

A T1 is 1.5 both ways for about $400/month.

The Verizon guy claims that a T1 at 1.5 Mbps is going to be faster than the 3 M dsl line.  Is he right?  I don't know.  Should I get a T1?

I'm tempted to go with Comcast, less reliable I'm sure but way faster for the money.  For us, I'm not sure it's worth paying for reliability we don't need.

So, any thoughts?  Any other paths I should investigate?
