It probably does depend on telco, I don't like giving money to cable
companies and run DSL for many many years, and never had any problems.
It does seem (package-wise, but maybe not anymore) like they
officially give you less speed than cables, but raw bandwidth is not
that important to me. Do a research on dslreport.com for LA area, I
went with a smaller ISP and so far no complaints. If I was to get
something national, SpeakEasy looks very good.
