I've recently seen advertised in my area isdn service at cost almost 
competitive with dsl of similar bandwidth (according to the advertisement).  
Could someone explain the differences in terms of actual throughput, latency, 
etc.  How 115kbs isdn different from 115/115 dsl (or load balanced 56.6 
modems)?  What should be considered in making this decision.  Are there GOOD 
docs explaining current connectivity choices, and where may I find them?
I've read some material on optimizing connectivity through a modem, latency in 
serial connections and modems, and such, but they were old when I read them 
(1997) and I forgot (and didn't record :-( ) where I found them anyway.  I'd 
appreciate any pointers to either current or slightly out of date 
documentation as well as any first hand experience anyone may wish to share.
