For the majority of people, the greatest factor is reliability and if reliability is essential to the applications you run on your connection, you ought to really consider swapping out your DSL connection with a T1. DSL is a swift and cost efficient means of acquiring high speed bandwidth, however it is not intended to carry commercial applications or huge numbers of subscribers that a T1 line can handle.
