Need fatter intertubes

I've been thinking about getting more bandwidth lately. The 1.5 Mbps DSL from Earthlink has been ok so far. No complaints and I've only lost service once or twice since I've had it. With Netflix in the house now pushing the issue I decided to look into it.

Earthlink advertises up to 6 Mbps DSL service. In an initial online chat I was told that there were no faster speeds available in my area, which is unfortunate. I might actually have to call to confirm this.

AT&T's DSL page tells me that DSL isn't available for my location (WTF?) although I can get U-Verse apparently (maybe they want to phase out DSL?).

Cable internet through Comcast would be the other option.
