If speed and price are the only considerations, maybe.
I live in a rural area in NC. While DSL would be insufficient for my needs (I have Spectrum/TWC), friends of my parents are totally happy with the local telecom. Sure, it simply doesn't have the speed that cable does, but it's more than enough for them. Furthermore, the large cablecos cannot touch the level of service that is standard with the local telecom. If they ever have problems, a guy is usually there within 45 minutes.
So it all depends on what your needs are, and more importantly, where you live.
