What internet service to use in Cambridge, Massachusetts?

Does anyone have experience with both high speed internet options in East Cambridge, Mass, that can tell me what the practical
differences are between Verizon DSL and Comcast cable internet in the neighborhood? I know that technically Comcast is faster than Verizon (6 mpbs v. 3 mbps), but is there any real difference when it comes to every day usage? Does the fact that there seems to be a Verizon central office on Bent Street in East Cambridge
(just a few blocks from my new place) mean that it may actually end up being faster than (or comparable to) Comcast which shares the bandwidth among all subscribers in an area?
Anecdotes about people's real experiences in this neighborhood would be most helpful to me!
