I am debating on getting Verizon 4G service or a Earthlink cable ran to my house for internet. Which is faster? Which is more stable? Right now our internet is not fast enough for the demands it gets. Verizon offers a service where a 4G antenna is attached to your house and ran to a modem.

You can find out by going to www.speedtest.net

My backup DSL is quite slow compared to 50 Mb/s cable, which I just upgraded to a few months ago from 3 Mb/s and it is the same provider and same price. :)

Earthlink advertises up to 15 Mb/s so I would check with them first over the 4G.

Now a days 4G is widely used all over the world because It is a wireless connection, I consistently saw its faster speed tests, and experienced quicker real-world downloads and uploads, than my comcast cable connection.
