Internet Connection Required to Play

Program Note: My move went great... but the internet has been out at my new apartment for four days and counting. Comcast has no idea what the problem is, has to be reminded each time we call them that there is a general outage in our area (though they keep trying to send us more technicians in case the first technician missed something specific to our building). No idea when I'll get to blog or play again.

Out of sheer morbid curiosity, does anyone have experience gaming on a DSL internet connection? I know it'll make patch day suck, but there are no other cable companies in our area, and slow internet might actually be an improvement over no internet. :(

Updates as they happen....

I have had both DLS and cable while on-line gaming. I've done patch days on both and found negligible differences.

As far as I can tell, those commercials about the 'slowness' of DSL are all a pack of lies (commercials sponsored by cable companies, no less). Go for DSL, it didn't make a damn difference for me. Except in one area: DSL was 1/10th the cost of cable! :P

I had Verizon's DSL for most of the time PS was raiding in BWL. Didn't notice any issues.
