Comcast chief: DSL becoming the new dial up

Comcast Chairman and CEO Brian Roberts told the recent Bear Stearns 20th Annual Media Conference that given cable's broadband speed advantage over DSL, cable is to DSL what DSL is to dial up. Therefore, Roberts declared, DSL is the "new dial up."

Roberts' remarks reported in The Motley Fool would certainly give indigestion to lots of folks in places like El Dorado County who are stuck with dial up, unable to get DSL and often located only a mile or two -- or less -- from existing Comcast cable. Adding insult to injury, Comcast's Web site will inform visitors that cable is available in their ZIP codes when in fact it's not.
